Microsoft SharePoint 2010: Web Content Management, Part 2 of 4

Course description

Microsoft SharePoint 2010 brings a whole new set of tools to the table for Web Content Management. This course will show how you can create and publish sites and pages while getting an understanding of how to apply Branding with Custom Style Sheets (CSS), Master pages and styles. You will then learn about creating publishing site definitions using Visual Studio solutions, how to add your branding to the definition and create and incorporate those assets to your site. You will then learn about content types and how to create and use page layouts with content types to deploy them to your site. One of the biggest updates to the tools is the SharePoint Designer. You will see how you can create many items with SharePoint Designer that once could only have been done with Visual Studio. As you get further along in the course you will see audience targeting, the pushing of content for updates and content variations. The course will finish up with navigation and search administration and the aggregation of information through queries, site collections and analysis reporting.

Each LearnNowOnline training course is made up of Modules (typically an hour in length). Within each module there are Topics (typically 15-30 minutes each) and Subtopics (typically 2-5 minutes each). There is a Post Exam for each Module that must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to successfully and fully complete the course.
