Microsoft SharePoint Online is a cloud-based service, hosted by Microsoft, which enables an organization to easily create and manage custom team-focused
and project-focused sites for collaboration. In addition, it’s possible to deploy an organization-wide intranet portal used to disseminate information
and news across the organization.
The Virginia Tech Office 365 SharePoint Online environment is subdivided into two categories:
- SharePoint Online – User
- SharePoint Online – Departmental
While both categories fundamentally operate in the same manner, each has a distinct set of end user license agreements (EULA) (for user), memorandum
of understanding (MOU)(for department) and design limitations.
