Webucator's Free SharePoint End User Training Tutorial
Lesson: Page Content
Welcome to our free SharePoint End User Training tutorial. This tutorial is based on Webucator's SharePoint 2016 End User Training course.
SharePoint offers a couple of ways to add content to the pages in a site. The
latest technique and the one implemented by the Team Site template is through
wiki style pages. Another method that has been part of SharePoint since the
beginning is the use of Web Parts and Web Part pages. Both techniques are
similar in the output that can be created, and both Web Part pages and wiki
pages share the ability to add Web Parts to them.
