SharePoint Collaborative Web Space
SharePoint, a browser-based content management system, allows groups, such as a project team or class, to set up a centralized, password-protected Web space for document sharing, online meetings, event planning and more.
Sites are initially limited to 500MB. However, administrators can request more space through the ITCS service request system.
Go to http://help.ecu.edu and submit a request for a new SharePoint site.
ECU team members log in to the new site using a PirateID and passphrase. Team members external to ECU are added to the site by submitting a service request through the Help Desk (see link above).
Occasionally, Mac users have difficulty utilizing SharePoint's features. VMWare or Boot Camp might be required for full functionality.
There is a collaborative tool in Office 2008 (EWS), called the Microsoft Document Connection Tool, that allows Mac users to edit documents in SharePoint.
