Microsoft Productivity Hub is a Quick Win for Training and Governance

The Microsoft Productivity Hub 2010 is a customizable, on-premise training solution for technology products. Developed by RedTech for Microsoft, the Productivity Hub is based on SharePoint 2010. Code for the Productivity Hub’s Sliverlight components and other add-ons can be found here.

The Microsoft Productivity Hub can help improve information worker productivity by giving users the answers they need quickly. The site delivers an engaging user experience by offering rich, task-based training content, how-to videos, learning roadmaps, forums, and more.

By incorporating a professional user interface design, Silverlight web parts, and using native SharePoint features such as dataviews ratings, and keyword tags, the Microsoft Productivity Hub solution illustrates just a few of the many capabilities of SharePoint Server 2010. Additionally, the site can be customized to reflect your company’s branding or other unique training requirements.

Here is a short video on the use of the Productivity Hub.

SPSDemo has put a demo site online, be sure to check it out!!
