SharePoint Designer 2010 Provides an Effective Method of Attractively Branding SharePoint Sites

Early versions of Microsoft SharePoint Designer took on the reputation of a web design wrecking ball. Internet discussions about the versions of SharePoint Designer that predated SharePoint Designer 2010 are rich with mentions of broken SharePoint sites as the result of using SharePoint Designer (aka for those older versions as Microsoft FrontPage) to build site style along with visual and audible features.

With SharePoint Designer 2010 the book has finally closed on that past history. The present version of the product is a reliable tool that can be used quite effectively to implement a consistent corporate brand across a network of SharePoint sites, regardless of whether or not the network resides on an Intranet or is outward facing on the Internet.

SharePoint-Videos offers a highly useful set of training videos by learning to exploit the branding capabilities of SharePoint 2010. When this training content is implemented in conjunction with our instructional video tutorials on SharePoint Designer 2010 a high value method is at hand to empower appropriate users (meaning SharePoint Administrators, Designers, Developers & architects) with the knowledge they need to produce attractive SharePoint sites that adhere to guidelines for corporate branding.

The unique characteristics of instructional videos, that they can be accessed whenever users need to refer to training documentation, together with portability that can be exploited successfully via local installation within a SharePoint sub site, make them very useful as a method of provisioning the training required by users in an attractive manner that promises high levels of user adoption.

Pricing is such that purchasing enterprise licenses for our SharePoint Branding DVD together with our SharePoint Designer 2010 Fundamentals DVD for a user community comprised of 40 or more users amounts to a one time acquisition cost of a mere $100.00 per user, substantially less than the cost of in-person training, which can run to 5 or even 10 times this cost, for the same size group. It should also be kept in mind that in-person training options will rarely, if ever, provide the student with content that can be reused, as required, to refresh on trained procedures without the accompanying abstraction that tends to pervade in-person training options. We are confident, in fact, that instructional video tutorials are precisely the best means of inculcating students with specific training like SharePoint operational procedures.

We welcome opportunities to further discussions about all of our training collections. Please either call us at (630) 786-7026, or Contact Us. We will be happy to discuss this topic at greater length.
