"Office 365 for the IT Pro - Platform" course now available on MVA

Microsoft Virtual Academy - Announcing the Release of the ‘Office 365 for the IT Pro – Platform” course to the Microsoft Virtual Academy

The Microsoft Virtual Academy team would like to announce the release of the Office 365 for the IT Pro – Platform course.

If you are looking to exploring the features of Office 365, or wondering if it’s right for your business this 5 module course will provide you valuable information on the core Office 365 features.


No core features course would be complete without a look at the administration features and this course covers these with a look at how to perform tasks using PowerShell.

This course is the first in a series of 3, with additional course on Exchange Online and Collaboration with Lync Online and SharePoint online available at the MVA." [GD: Post Leach Level: 95%]

"Just exploring the features of Office 365? Wondering if it’s right for your business? Trying to determine what’s involved in migrating to Office 365? This track provides you an overview of the components that comprise Office 365, including the different licenses available and what’s included with each. From that overview, the next modules go in to greater detail on Office Pro Plus – the version of the Office suite unique to Office 365 – and how to deploy/activate it. Additional modules go in to detail on what kinds of administration you can perform with PowerShell, and an overview of the sign-on options available with Office 365, including directory synchronization with your existing Active Directory, and implementing Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) for single sign on between on premises and Office 365 cloud services.


If you're IT, or just think you are, and interested in Office 365, this course looks like a good place to start.

NOTE! These courses use the Office 365 Jumpstart videos I previously blogged about, 15 for 365 - 15 Videos Office 365 for IT Pros. So if you're already watched those, you can jump right to the self-assessments and earn your points quickly... :)
