Earlier this year we released a Beta Preview of Custom Learning for Office 365, to help you increase usage and adoption of Office 365 in an organization.
The early adoption of this in the market has been both humbling and exciting. While early adoption has been strong we heard your clear feedback that you wanted to leverage this more broadly to help with usage and adoption for all of Microsoft 365.
Today we’re pleased to announce the Beta Preview of Microsoft 365 learning pathways. Microsoft 365 learning pathways is a customizable, on-demand training solution designed to increase usage and adoption for all of Microsoft 365 in your organization.
Introducing Microsoft 365 learning pathways, your customizable, on-demand training solution
Once you easily provision the fully customizable SharePoint communication site through the SharePoint Online Provisioning Service you can create targeted training pathways to meet the unique needs of your company or use those that we’ve provided within the solution. Creat custom playlists by blending learning content from Microsoft’s online content catalog with your organization’s support and process training. You can also integrate partner content to create enhanced training pathways. All of the Microsoft content is connected to an online Microsoft content catalog so you can rest assured knowing that the content on your site is automatically updated to stay current with our product features and best practices.
The SharePoint Online Provisioning Service makes it easy to provision learning pathways in your organization.
The Beta Preview of Microsoft 365 learning pathways is the first step in a continuing journey. Later this year we plan to release additional features to help you such as:
Multi-language support of 9 languages
Support for multiple templates or content sets
Release of Microsoft 365 adoption guidance content to streamline your adoption journey
Quarterly updates of new online content
Open source release of the complete solution
Roadmap for onboarding of Education, government cloud and firstline worker related content
Partner specific onboarding guidance
Several existing Microsoft partners offer training solutions for Office 365 and Windows 10 and offer premium services that go beyond the capabilities of Microsoft 365 learning pathways, providing unique and compelling value that further helps customers adopt Microsoft technology. Unique partner capabilities include custom course design, instructor-led design, gamification, user behavior analytics, extensive communication engagement features and live support. We are excited to have a strategic sampling of them with us on this journey to the release of learning pathways.
Depending on the size and complexity of training and adoption needs in your organization it is possible to use our solution in combination with partner offerings to create a robust adoption & training program for your employees.
