In this course, youll learn about the web content management features of Microsoft SharePoint 2007. The course starts from the perspective of an end-user so that you will understand what the authors and consumers of your SharePoint sites will see, and then goes beneath the surface to teach you to customize and extend the out-of-the-box features.
By the time you complete this course, you will understand how to implement sites that face the Internet with branded look and feel so that your visitors will never know they are looking at a SharePoint site; and youll understand how to configure the same site to support the creators and managers of content in your organization. You will also learn how to implement and customize things like security and navigation, how to deploy content to production environments, and how to target different audiences and different countries and languages.
