E-Learning Software Assurance Benefit Update

Friday 12th October 2018

Software Assurance eLearning is being replaced with Microsoft Learn - a free, interactive, quick, and fun way to learn Microsoft products and services! Microsoft Learn helps you quickly learn new skills with step-by-step interactive tutorials including videos and hands on learning. Select your level, task, or job role and follow a guided learning experience to build the skills you need.

• Learning on your time: Step by step bite sized tutorials and modules aligned to role-based certifications make it easier to dedicate time for learning.
• Learn by doing: Interactive, browser based coding environments provide a friction free, hands on experience.
• Get recognized with achievements: Complete modules, test your knowledge, and earn and share achievements to recognize your skills.
• Learn the way you want: Choose from free self paced tutorials, hands on learning, structured online Azure courses from Pluralsight, and instructor led classes from Microsoft Learning Partners.

Beginning November 1st, 2018, current content and portals available to Software Assurance E Learning customers will be retired, and access to current courses, transcripts, completion certificates and administrative tools residing on those sites will be unavailable. In place of these resources, Software Assurance E Learning customers will be directed to Microsoft Learn or product specific destinations for richer, more engaging, and more up to date materials.

Content on Microsoft Learn includes Azure and new Dynamics 365, Power BI, PowerApps, and Microsoft Flow courses today and will expand over the next year. Existing online courses will be reviewed and content on latest releases will be modernized, updated and migrated to Microsoft Learn over the next year.
