Sharepoint 365 Site collections and sites you can create

Site Collections are what Sharepoint sites are placed into.

  • They are the primary structural component of Sharepoint.
  • Except for Global admin, Everything in Sharepoint is done in site collections.

There are three primary types

  1. Collaboration Site Collection templates
  2. Enterprise Site Collection templates
  3. Publishing Site Collection Templates

Our experience in Sharepoint 2010 Foundation was almost exclusively with Collaboration team sites.
