The Productivity Hub is a Microsoft SharePoint Server 2007 site collection that offers training materials for end-users.

  • Microsoft has developed the Productivity Hub to help support your ongoing end user training efforts.

    The Hub is a SharePoint Server 2007 site collection that serves as a learning community and is fully customizable. It provides a central place for your training efforts, and includes training content from Microsoft’s core products. Microsoft also provides ongoing and updated content packs.

    The Hub uses SharePoint Server’s social networking capabilities, such as blogs and discussion groups. In addition, it offers the Coach program, a change management feature to help you train end users to self-help, reducing the burden on your training and IT staff. The Coach program impacts productivity in a collaborative and positive way.

    What the Productivity Hub is:
    • Format: Pre-loaded SharePoint site collection, optimized for Web 2.0 functionality and easily deployed within SharePoint Server 2007 environment.
    • Content: Convenient end user productivity training in a variety of formats (documents, videos, podcasts, etc.). Receive free quarterly updates of content that you will learn about through the Productivity blog.
    • Blog: The Productivity blog offers tips and tricks for end user productivity. Use it as is, or your training staff can use the posts as their own to help them get started in running an internal blog.
    • Train the trainer: Includes IT/Manager section to aid with deployment of the site collection, and guidance to develop the Coach program.
    • Products: Office 2007 and 2010 System applications (including SharePoint Server 2007), Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8.

    You can also download additional content packages that expand the training materials you can make available through the Hub.

  • Windows XP or later
    Office System SharePoint Server 2007 with SP2 or later installed

Installation Instructions

  • Office System SharePoint Server 2007 with SP2 or later installed
    The Microsoft Productivity Hub solution is packaged as a set of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 features with related content. To install the Productivity Hub solution, you must have Service Pack 1 or later of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Standard edition or Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 Enterprise edition already installed and configured.

    Add-on Content Package
    This content package contains more than 200 additional training materials that you can add to the Microsoft Productivity Hub. The package includes materials for five new products -- Live Meeting, OneNote, Project, Publisher, and Visio -- as well as additional content for Access, Communicator, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, SharePoint, and Word. Install the Hub before using this content package. The 2007 Productivity Hub v3 contains all content packages that have been released through September 2010. You do not need to download these packages separately.

    To enable the search capabilities within the Productivity Hub, a Shared Services Provider must be associated with the Productivity Hub site collection and configured to search the Productivity Hub site collection.

    Disk Space
    Once installed, the solution consumes roughly 2.3 gigabytes of disk space. The majority of this is content (e.g. large video files and Office System documents) which SharePoint manages via its content database.
