Earlier this year we released a Beta Preview of Microsoft 365 learning pathways, to help you increase usage and adoption of Office 365 and other services in your organization. Today we’re pleased to announce the general availability of this solution in November, 2019. Microsoft 365 learning pathways (M365LP) is a customizable, on-demand training solution easily provisioned from the SharePoint Provisioning Service into your own Office 365 tenant.
M365LP provides customers with content streamed from Microsoft for key services such as Office applications (Word, Excel and PowerPoint), Microsoft Teams, Planner and others. Once installed this solution can be customized to your own company brand and service usage. Custom playlists for your own business processes can be included and the entire experience is configured in SharePoint Online giving you maximum familiarity and flexibility.
Version 3.0 of the customer SharePoint webpart and site experience also includes an Administrators Success Site with step by step guidance for setup, configuration and adoption of the site across your organization.
You can gain access to these new features by installing version 3.0 of the M365LP web part. Updating the webpart will not overwrite your custom content and playlists. Instruction for updating the web part can be found here.
Based on your feedback and our desire to empower end user training around the world we are also announcing our multi-lingual capability will be available in Q1 of CY20. Nine languages will be supported as part of this release, including Chinese (Simplified), Dutch (Netherlands), French, German, Italian (Italy), Japanese (Japan), Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian (Russian), Spanish.
With over 4,000 installs during our beta period your feedback and enthusiasm has been exciting. We are happy to move to this next stage with the solution. We have invested in further content delivery based on your feedback and will be adhering to a quarterly content update schedule communicated within our online documentation and here in our Driving Adoption blog.
Key Microsoft partners including Content Panda, Storyals, VisualSP, Planet Technologies, Sarah Haase, MVP and Vitalyst have participated in our Early Adopter program to prepare for their ability to install, support and customize the solution as a part of their adoption/change management offerings. In addition these partners are preparing to offer value added content in custom content packs in the future.
