Exciting news! XtremeLabs has published a book on Experiential Learning: The Future of Workforce Development eXL BOOK AVAILABLE NOW What are you doing to prepare for the future of work?

Some of you may already be following the news about changes to MS Learn and how Microsoft will be tracking Learning Partner and MCT credits.

On May 4, following Microsoft’s announcement that they would be transitioning training content to MS Learn, an open learning platform, XtremeLabs began a series of conversations with Learning Partners and Microsoft Certified Trainers to make it easier for their students to access MS Learn content and to track their usage.

As a result, XtremeLabs is announcing some exciting new features on the XtremeLabs platform! We have rolled out some integration features so that our partners don’t need to worry about these changes as students transition from accessing training content on Skillpipe to using MS Learn. Our labs are integrated with MS Learn so that learners’ and partners’ engagement with MS Learn is automatically stored and associated with your MPN ID.

The new XtremeLabs features allows Learning Partners to choose which pieces of integrated content, from MS Learn or elsewhere, to include in students’ accounts. The XtremeLabs backend manages all of the APIs, updates, and KPIs that flow between the content and the student experience, associating student access with the Learning Partner’s Microsoft Partner Number (MPN ID), so that Learning Partners and Microsoft Certified Trainers don’t need to worry about student access or tracking it. The integration is fully managed by XtremeLabs, so all updates made by Microsoft will be dynamically reflected on the XtremeLabs platform.

MS Learn content has been integrated into 123 courses. A list of courses can be found at the end of this blog post. MS Learn content can be accessed by the user:

  1. In the account portal before a lab is launched
  2. In the lab environment after a lab has been launched

Integrated MS Learn Courses in the Account Portal

Once an access code is redeemed, users are able to view MS Learn content as a separate tile in the lab view in the account portal. Once users click on the tile, they are redirected to the corresponding MS Learn Course.

Integrated MS Learn Modules in the Lab Environment

Users can also access the MS Learn content from within the lab environment. After a lab has been launched, users can view the MS Learn modules under the file section of the lab manual. Users are redirected to the corresponding MS Learn Module.

For labs purchased through Courseware Marketplace, the MPN ID will already be linked and added to the Learning Partner profile. For labs purchased directly through XtremeLabs, the administrators of the learning partners have access to update and add MPN ID for their classrooms under the manage classrooms tab in the account portal. After the MPN ID is associated with the classroom, any student launching labs through a code from that classroom will then have the MPN ID associated with their launches.

XtremeLabs is conducting a series of live demos of the new capability. Please register here. You can also watch a recorded webinar here!
