Look, Microsoft Virtual Academy has a new look!

Microsoft Virtual Academy - Hello new MVA course experience! Goodbye grey bars of confusion!

Dear MVA learners! On the heels of hitting over 1,000,000 learners who visited just last month, today we unveiled a totally new way for you to experience your MVA learning!

Over the past year many of you told us:

"Your course player was hard to use!"

"Clumsy, cumbersome!"

"I didn't know where to start when I landed on a course."

"Juggling different pages and video players was confusing!"

This new player experience, using HTML5, is designed to help make it easier to get you to the courses you are interested in and allow you to discover and navigate all within a single page.



I missed this when it was announced earlier this month. I went to MVA today and was impressed with the new look and feel of the Course pages. Short, simple and easy to use, three of my favorite things.

Also somewhat new is that there's now a New Course Feed and News Feed. Now I AM a happy camper!  :)
