Microsoft Official Courses: Now Digital!

Posted by Rubel Khan on October 9, 2009

It is my pleasure to announce that Microsoft has released 71 courses digitally. These are some of the most popular Microsoft Official Courses, giving you the same learning materials for use with instructor-led training on Microsoft technologies, only now in digital form.

The digital version of each course comes with three files:

  1. The main course file including lab instructions and lab answer keys (the equivalent of the printed book)
  2. *New* The lab manual file (just the lab instructions and lab answer keys, which is also included in the main course file)
  3. The CD image file (an ISO image copy of the CD that comes in the printed book)

 

Digital versions of these courses are offered exclusively through Certified Partners for Learning Solutions (CPLSs) and are currently available in North America, Western Europe, European Union accession countries, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore.

What are some of the benefits of going digital?

These courses are available for last minute orders, do not require shipping and handling fees, eliminate the need for inventory on hand, enable easier distance learning options, includes full text search, allow for new separate lab manual for easy access, reduce waste and paper needs, and allow new courses to be made available digitally earlier than printed. Check out the FAQ for more details and a listing of the 71 courses.

If you are a CPLS, login to the Courseware Library to get immediate access. If you are a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT), visit the MCT Download Center for new materials available for these 71 courses. And last, but not least, if you are someone interested in taking one of these courses, check out this nifty class locator tool.
