It’s been a long time that I have written anything here. I am glad to be back. I have changed my role and am now working as a Technical Account Manager, managing Premier Customers in India.
During one of my interactions, I came to know about Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA).
What is MVA?
Microsoft Virtual Academy – MVA is a fully cloud-based learning experience focusing on Microsoft Cloud Technologies. You can access a variety of training content online and become one of the renowned experts in the IT Pro community around the world. MVA provides its users with a virtual university experience: the student can select a track and study the material and then do the self-assessment. By doing so, he will collect points that will promote him to a Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum Level. Students on MVA can get access to all the information, statistics and advancements of their training career, allowing them to maintain a long-term relationship with Microsoft. Learning through MVA is free of charge, and you can study the contents at any time and at your own pace. The MVA platform is hosted on the latest Microsoft Azure technology, which guarantees that your learning experience will flow uninterruptedly for the best online learning experience ever!
What tracks are available?
The subjects of the tracks range from technologies and products to different solutions, each of which contributes to contextualizing and/or updating the knowledge acquired. Tracks are completed when you study the material and pass the self-assessments assigned to each.
You will receive points for downloading and studying the materials and passing the self-assessment, which will help you climb to the next level within the Academy, all the way up to Platinum.
Students can enroll in several tracks at a time, depending on availability. However, it is important that you only register for the contents that are most important to you, otherwise you might overextend yourself and this could affect your yield and average.
How can I start using MVA?
To start using the MVA you need to take the following steps:
- Log on to the MVA at http://www.microsoftvirtualacademy.com/
- Select one of the courses and enroll at http://www.microsoftvirtualacademy.com/Studies/SearchResult.aspx
Select the learning topics you are interested in, study the materials and pass the self-assessments to accumulate points and achieve Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum status.
I hope this information has been helpful to you.
