What is Sharepoint?

SharePoint is a web application framework and platform developed by Microsoft, it integrates intranet, content management and document management.

SharePoint comprises a multipurpose set of Web technologies backed by a common technical infrastructure. By default, SharePoint has a Microsoft Office-like interface, and it is closely integrated with the Office suite. The web tools are intended for non-technical users. SharePoint can provide intranet portals, document & file management, collaboration, social networks, extranets, websites, enterprise search, and business intelligence. It also has system integration, process integration, and workflow automation capabilities.

It can be used as a secure place to store, organize, share, and access information from almost any device. These sites are easily accessed from a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox.

Faculty and staff may request the activation of a SharePoint site.  For additional information concerning this, and the training requirements associated with a SharePoint site, please visit the Cleveland State University SharePoint Site.  This site may be accessed via your engage365 account by selecting "NewsFeed" and then "Cleveland State University SharePoint Sites".
