Introducing Microsoft 365 Learning Paths on Microsoft Learn
Published Oct 21 2019 09:30 AM 43.8K Views

As the pace at which technologies are evolving continues to accelerate, the need for evergreen and consumable readiness training is more important than ever before. This year at Microsoft Ignite we introduced learning paths: a series of connected learning modules including sessions, hands-on experiences, technical workshops, and certifications. By continually building on previous modules a learner can develop a comprehensive set of skills throughout the event while being connected with the leading experts in those solution areas.


While Microsoft events are always a fun and educational experience, you don’t need to be attending one to get started – queue Microsoft Learn! Microsoft Learn provides a new approach to learning by offering on-demand dynamic and interactive experiences to help you achieve your technical and professional goals faster. Through self-guided learning paths, you can take charge of your own learning and choose the expertise level you’d like to achieve. Even more rewarding, Microsoft Learn gamifies learning by enabling you to track progress, check knowledge, and validate deployments to earn points, levels, achievements, and trophies. ​Start your learning off by taking just a few of the free, bite-sized modules on relevant solutions or walk through an entire learning path to set yourself up to achieve an industry-recognized certification!




For Microsoft 365 we are thrilled to offer a collection of 22 learning paths ranging from collaborating with Microsoft Teams to protecting your organizational data and information with Microsoft 365! We’ve included some of our most popular learning paths directly below to jump straight into your learning!

Coming soon for Microsoft Ignite!

  • Manage security with Microsoft 365
  • Protect against threats with Microsoft 365
  • Protect enterprise information with Microsoft 365
  • Upgrade to Microsoft Teams
  • Upgrade Office for IT at scale

We’re also excited to announce that the following learning paths now include hands-on and interactive experiences! Throughout the modules as a learner you will be able to utilize a click-thru guide with narration to walk through a configuration or enablement of that solution. Based on industry research we have seen that by adding an experiential hands-on component to the modules learners understand the “how” and “why” behind the solution implementations. By enabling IT Pros to experience the deep-dive technical details and best practice implementations, we can empower all IT Pros to be more confident working with our solutions. Check out these Learning Paths to get hands-on!
