When I first released The SharePoint Shepherd’s Guide for End Users I was asked about all sorts of things. One of those things was if there were any screen shots available. At that point, I wasn’t able to say yes. But that’s changing. I was able to work with my technical editor for the book and he’s agreed to record the step-by-step instructions in the book into screen casts. The screen casts will have the same content as the book but available in a video format that some users prefer. We’re about 20% of the way done with the preproduction files and expect to do the packaging of the individual files in the next few weeks. We’re probably still more than 30 days out from having a complete screen cast offering set; however, it’s something that I feel good about starting to offer customers. If you’re interested in talking about pricing or learning more you can email my administrator for the project.
We’re also nearly complete with the SharePoint site option for licensing the content. This option allows you to get the book as a wiki that users can comment upon and link to in their emails. The beauty here is that it includes a limited license to the commenter web part that we’ve been developing which allows you to restrict edits to the wiki pages themselves – but allows folks to comment on the pages. This way you can have the sort of limited editing experience that many organizations have been looking for. If you’re interested in the wiki/site based license or purchasing the commenter web part for your own uses, email my administrator.
