Posted by Michael Blonder on Jun 4, 2015

VisualSP®, creators of the industry-leading VisualSP™ Just In Time Learning™ solution for SharePoint, will publicly debut an App for Office 365 on June 11, 2015. The Office 365 App will be presented by Asif Rehmani, CEO during an open-to-the-public webinar. Anyone can register. Please visit http://sharepoint-videos.com/webinar-on-visualsp-app-in-context-on-demand-help-for-sharepoint-online-office-365-users/ to let us know you plan to attend this event.

We think the same set of familiar hurdles facing any group of stakeholders in a SharePoint on-premises solution actually face stakeholders in a plan to use the Sites component of Office 365. Either way, if users are not equipped with the tools they need to be successful they will not adopt Office 365 as a computing platform and Sites as a core component of how best to store precious organizational data in document libraries and lists. 

So everyone agrees training users is mandatory. The differences exist in the various approaches solution providers take to achieve their objective. 

Back in April, 2000, in an article titled Just In Time Learning, Monica Sambataro wrote: "Rather than having employees take time away from work to sit through traditional classroom courses, many companies are using technology-based, self-guided tutorials and databases that allow users to focus on "nuggets" of information as needed to perform specific tasks and solve problems as they crop up." What was true in 2000 has stayed true today, and has evolved into Performance Support: "Performance Support (PS) is any learning modality, resource or asset that is accessible and applicable at the moment of need".The portals of learning Sambataro wrote about back in 2000 have evolved into the best expression of this approach for SharePoint -- VisualSP.

Please join us if you can on June 11, 2015. We are sure your time will be well spent.
