Have you discovered Microsoft Learn learning rooms? In these dedicated environments hosted on Microsoft Teams, you can connect with colleagues and tech experts to dive deep into topic-specific questions via asynchronous discussions and virtual sessions. Current learning rooms focus on the latest tech subjects, including, “AI for everyone,” “All things Azure architecture and development,” “Cloud Security Study Group,” and many more. Are you ready to explore these rooms as you embark on an exciting journey of learning, growth, and discovery?


At Microsoft Learn, our mission is to empower learners of all backgrounds, skill levels, and languages on their technical skill-building journey. We know that our learning rooms can benefit all learners, but we also understand that everyone's learning path is unique, and some learners might not be sure where to begin. Plus, they might not even know about the variety of opportunities and resources available to them in the learning rooms. That's why we're introducing Learner Central—your all-in-one hub for navigating the rich landscape of skill-building content, training, events, and experiences across all Microsoft Learn learning rooms—even those you haven’t yet joined.

A community that's here for you

In our learning rooms, you can collaborate with colleagues and subject matter experts and receive guided support by participating in peer-to-peer sessions and discussions on the tech topics that interest and inspire you the most. Start conversations, view and share files, and get expert guidance. We're dedicated to meeting you where you are in your learning journey, propelling you toward your goals, and celebrating every milestone along the way. With the addition of Learner Central, we’re continuing our commitment to building a diverse and supportive learning community.


Join, learn, grow

Whether you're a beginner eager to dive into new tech topics or an expert who wants to add to your expertise, you have access to a wealth of resources, events, and sessions that align with your tech interests and goals. Learner Central is designed to help ensure that you're aware of the latest happenings, opportunities, and resources in the Microsoft Learn Community—all from a single spot—regardless of which learning rooms you’ve joined. This destination goes beyond just connecting you to content about cutting-edge technology and skills—it's also about enriching your learning experience and forging community connections with fellow learners, mentors, and experts, creating a vibrant ecosystem of support. 


Weekly roundup of learning excellence

As an added bonus, Learner Central offers a Weekly roundup channel, highlighting activities across all of our learning rooms to help you navigate the wide spectrum of skill-building opportunities and resources. This curated digest keeps you in the know about workshops, webinars, interactive “ask me anything” (AMA) sessions, videos, community meetups, and more—everything you need to fuel your tech learning journey, all in one place, so you don’t miss any opportunity to build your skills and connect with the community. For added insight, we’ve also included a Meet the Microsoft Learn experts directory. Plus, you have an easy Join a learning room option so you can participate in an activity you found in the roundup.
