Comments from some of those who selected SharePoint as one of their Top 10 Tools in 2016

“My favorite professional social network environment and as a social collaboration tool in our learning organization it supports me in ‘Working out Loud’ and overall skill building with and about social media. Even better than participation in online-learning courses ;-)” L&D Manager, Germany

“Collaboration platform and document sharing” Ann Gall, Instructional Designer, Canada

“Started using it back in 2007 and have used it at multiple companies. Feel it is generally under-used and misunderstood but it helps me organize my projects and set up a one-stop-shop where stakeholders can see what’s going on with each project.” L&D Consultant, UK

“as LMS and learning tool” Lynetter Kissoon, Canada

“I use this tool to host my learning community collaboration site, and sites for blended learning courses.” Daniel Jones, Trainer/Instructor, Switzerland

“Great for sharing information and documents” Steve Adams, Trainer/Instructor, UK
