2012-04-10-SPOnlineOffice365MindMap-01.png
SharePoint Online and Office 365

I’ve had this Mindmap planned for some time now but kept putting it off. With the recent update of course material for exam 10174B I’m now getting to the point where I’m looking at Office 365 again.

So, here is a Mindmap of resources that provide access to information including videos, planning material, blogs, wiki, forums, tools, Twitter, Facebook etc.

I’ve tried to group the content into categories:

  • Administration
  • Introduction
  • Planning
  • Resources
  • Setting Up

The small image above doesn’t quite do it justice so you can click/tap that to view a larger version.

The MindMap itself is also available as a SWF file on my public Dropbox here: http://db.tt/5gqJfY7S

If you would like to open the MindMap yourselves, I’ve uploaded it here: http://www.biggerplate.com/mindmaps/e2uw1xkU/sharepoint-online-and-office-365

and here: https://www.mapsforthat.com/map.php?m=2321

Please let me know if you find any errors of omissions.

And if you can’t be bothered with the MindMap:

Thank you!

Hey Chris...thank you for putting this together. The comprehensiveness is incredibly useful. I've bookmarked it so I have a great reference to all things SharePoint and Office 365.
