Install Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Training on your MOSS Server

Tires of your end-users calling you as an administrator to explain them the basics of how to use SharePoint sites? Then you are going to love this. Microsoft released Office SharePoint 2007 Training for End-users. (

You can install this in two ways:

  • as a standalone application on your end-user’s workstation

  • or you can even download a Portal edition, which allows you to go install this on your MOSS Server.

Now I prefer to go install this on my MOSS server, because that is the least effort for me (I don’t want to go install this at my End-User’s desktop. Hey I don’t want to see my End-user ever! )

I was a little sceptical at first about installing this on my Portal server, until I read through the deployment document accompanied with the download. This document explains the installation step-by-step, screen-by-screen even.

The installation took about 30 minutes to complete and I had a working training site for my End-Users.

What I liked most about installing this solution is that you get some hands-on experience in installing and deploying a SharePoint solution. I can imagine that not everybody does this on a daily bases.

 So if you can install this at least once o a test MOSS server to see the advantages in this new feature.
