Sharepoint Services

What is SharePoint?

SharePoint is a managed document storage solution from Microsoft. The SharePoint Online variant is a cloud based service provided as part of Office365, which schools receive for free from Microsoft. It's used as a tool to create storage solutions in different forms, from a VLE / Intranet to a managed document storage solution. The Cirrus team as part of Schools ICT have created a number of solutions targeted at schools and educational based services.

The version of SharePoint that Schools ICT support is SharePoint Online. This means it is all built online and information is stored in the cloud. That means you can save all your files at work or home into SharePoint and retrieve them anywhere you have a connection to the internet. And with Office apps available for mobile devices, that means you can read or edit documents on your tablet or phone.

SharePoint hooks into Office programs with ease and allows you to create documents in the cloud using the "cut down" version of programs such as:

  • Word Online
  • PowerPoint Online
  • Excel Online
  • OneNote Online

And by storing and sharing your documents in SharePoint, you can easily collaborate with your colleagues, even "co-authoring" documents. With this techology, you can have up to 10 people editing the same Word, Excel or PowerPoint document at the same time.You can instantly see the changes those users make, which are flagged up so you can see who is doing what. And from directly within the app you can open a chat session with any of your co-authors to aid your collaboration further.

Development Days

I'm interested in starting to move in to cloud storage. I will need help setting up the solution to begin with but have the option of opting out of on-going support. Staying in support also allows the Cirrus team to create staff and student accounts for me.

I would like to move to a cloud based storage and information solution. The site needs to adapt to our changing needs and allow future expansion. Security & control is essential to our school and with annual support user access is handled for me.

Once your Sharepoint Site is up and running there may be new features you would like adding to enhance your site. Developer days let you buy time (in days) from a Schools ICT developer who will be dedicated to working on your Sharepoint Site. A day consists of 8 hours and last for a full year. Days can be topped up anytime and we’ll deal with all the paperwork and invoicing.
