Last week Microsoft announced the release of their new learning website: Microsoft Learn — the best way to start learning Microsoft technologies.

Microsoft launched more than 80 hours of learning content in 23 different languages for Azure, Dynamics 365, PowerApps, Microsoft Flow, Power BI and more. All learning content is organized into modules, with 5 to 7 stems (also called units) and is about 30–60 minutes long. Each module has an overview, set of learning objectives time required for each unit, pre-requisites and amount of Experience Points (XP) rewarded. Completing modules and units allows you to receive points, achievements, trophies and level up; which then goes on your user profile. This is great for some competitivity in the office or even between your friends. 

Among the content, you’ll find experiences that will help get you ready for new certification exams for developers, administrators, solution architects and more.

Microsoft Azure

Microsoft provides interactive and effective learning with modules integrated with Azure. You can learn through hands-on- labs, instructor-led training and video courses. Follow a guided learning path or learn at your own pace to build practical job skills you can start using right away. 

There are 90+ Modules with 580+ units in the Azure learning content alone. You can choose lessons available for Administrators, Business Analysts, Users. Developers and Solution Architects, ranging from beginner to intermediate levels. 

One of the Beginner’s Modules: “Introduction to Azure” includes creating and configuring your first virtual machine in the cloud. Throughout the module, you build foundational skills you need to launch your first virtual machine, add a web server and scale up your server for more power. Along with the foundational skills in this module, you also build the skills you need to land the job of your dreams or even change the world!
