This year I released my free Collaboration in Microsoft 365 training course that covers the essentials of OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams – the collaboration core of M365. I’ve also just made it available as a YouTube playlist to make sure the content is available to the broadest audience and doesn’t require enrollment or prerequisites.
So when should you use which?
The course itself has more than just the video lessons. I’d recommend enrolling in the actual course for all 30+ video lessons as well as discussion and Q&A forums with me and the other students, quizzes to check your learning along the way, and a completion certificate. It’s also a fun thing for teams to enroll in and go through together. And even if you just do the 2-week free access to knock out the quizzes and get the certificate, you’ll have access to the videos on YouTube forever.
You can also just go through the YouTube playlist (4+ hours total) and use the individual videos to:
- Skip to and learn topics you’re less familiar with
- Share important topics and tips with coworkers easily
- Embed specific videos for your LMS, Teams, SharePoint, or other internal training resources
- Enhance your presentations and training efforts with in-the-moment learning videos, or as a reference to share after an engagement for continued learning or refreshers
No matter how you choose to learn and share Collaboration in Microsoft 365, I hope you find it valuable and enjoy the experience as much as I enjoyed putting it together.
