As a move towards an even more collaborative working environment, SharePoint 2013 now includes community sites. These allow users to have discussions, store contents, and interact with others in a manner that would be familiar to anyone already using various forms of social media. SharePoint 2013 also provides powerful search capabilities that you can make use of to easily locate any items across a SharePoint site. This version of SharePoint also continues to offer integration with the Microsoft Office suite of products, allowing you to create new Office documents from within SharePoint, or to launch either the full version or Web App version of a product as needed. This course covers participating in a community site, including joining the site, viewing categories and membership, discussions, and leaving the site.

Using the basic search functionality included with SharePoint 2013 is also covered, as well as launching Office applications from within SharePoint 2013 and using the Office Web Apps.
