Creating school websites with SharePoint part 2. Easy editing of pages.
Perhaps the most powerful argument for schools who have SharePoint as a Learning Platform to move their website over is the benefits of cost and time. Using SharePoint to produce websites means that key areas such as latest news can be updated without any technical skill. The image bellows shows a simple interface for adding text and images which is as easy as adding to a word document.
When this is completed the latest news appears instantly on the page. This role has recently moved over to the Headteachers PA instead of a member of staff from the IT team which ensures that valuable technical expertise is not used on administrative tasks. In addition to latest news, job vacancies can be added in minutes without waiting for a response from the technical team.
