Virtual Educator Prep Sessions are resources for Educators to support you as you join the MSLE program and prepare to teach Microsoft curriculum. This content is easily accessible via Microsoft Learn in a series of modules tailored for the Microsoft Learn for Educators community.

Microsoft Learn for Educators (MSLE) VEPS These modules will guide you through onboarding to the MSLE program — signing in to the MSLE Portal, downloading content from the Learning Download Center, recording your course details in the Portal, requesting a practice exam key or certification voucher, touring the MSLE Teams Community, getting prepared to teach your first class containing Microsoft Fundamentals or Advanced Role-Based content, exploring different curriculum integration options, and more.

Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC) VEPS These modules will help you prepare to bring the Microsoft Official Curriculum to life in your classes. You will learn tips and tricks from the creators of the Microsoft Learn for Educators program and Microsoft technical trainers about how to prepare for your first teaching session, which labs to use and when, how to introduce topics, and discover other resources and materials that may help your students to be more successful on their exams.


Tools for Teaching

Microsoft Learn for Educators not only helps prepare you to build your students’ technical skills with curriculum and education materials provided by Microsoft, but it also helps you to access and leverage a wide variety of Microsoft tools and resources that will support you and your students in your classes. Here are a few that will help you and your students build critical technical skills for the future:

  • Student Certification: Our mission is to help students achieve more, so we’re making certification exams and practice tests free to all eligible students, starting with fundamentals certifications. Students will need to create a profile on Learn, verify their enrollment at an accredited academic institution to claim the benefits, attest that they’ve attained the required skills, prepare for the exam with a free practice test, and then get certified using the free exam voucher.

  • Azure Dev Tools for Teaching: Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching puts professional developer tools, software, and services from Microsoft in the hands of faculty and students with low-cost subscriptions. Students receive developer tools at no cost — everything needed to create apps, games, and websites — so they can chase their dreams, create the next significant breakthrough in technology, or get a head start on their career. We designed Azure Dev Tools for Teaching for STEM-focused instruction. Any course curriculum focused on science, technology, engineering, or mathematics is eligible to use Azure Dev Tools for Teaching to help professors teach and students learn more effectively. Check here to see if you are eligible.

  • Azure Labs Services: Easily set up and provide on-demand access to preconfigured virtual machines (VMs) to support your students. Teach a class, run a hackathon or a hands-on lab, and more. Define your needs and the service will roll the lab out to your audience. Users access all their lab VMs from a single place.

  • Azure for Students: By creating an Azure for Students account, your students will receive access to more than 25 free Azure services plus $100 in Azure credit that renews annually. Students can also download free Dev Tools such as Visual Studio and SQL Server and access learning content through one convenient interface.

  • Microsoft Learn Student Hub: Built for students looking to master new concepts at their own speed and schedule, Microsoft Learn Student Hub allows students to develop practical skills through fun, interactive modules and learning paths. Educators and students can explore courses from universities like UC Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon University, and University of Oxford – all tailored for students who want to build in-demand job skills and the educators that want to teach them.

  • Microsoft Educator Center: Microsoft Educator Center contains a collection of resources you can use to make the most of remote teaching and skill building. With pathways to hands-on, educator tested projects, STEM lessons, free tools to help keep students engaged in remote and hybrid learning, and more, access the Microsoft in Education portal to build your skills to give your students the learning experiences they need to succeed.

  • Microsoft Learn LTI: Educators and Institutions can use the LTI application to integrate Microsoft Learn modules and Learning Paths into their curricula while providing hands-on experiences with Azure and other Microsoft technologies. Learners will be routed from their LMS to Microsoft Learn, where they can accrue experience points and achievements, and track progress on learning activities.

  • Microsoft Technical Quest: The Microsoft Technical Quest game can be played during a 15- to 30-minute course break, at lunch, or even after an event. It offers learners the opportunity to apply their newly acquired knowledge of Azure administration and architecture. Skill and chance both play a role in this hands-on, multiplayer or autonomous game, as players architect solutions based on real-world application of Microsoft technologies. With Microsoft Technical Quest, learners apply what they’ve learned and add to their technical skills, knowledge, and experience.

  • Workshop-O-Matic: A workshop library built by Cloud Advocates in partnership with Microsoft Student Ambassadors. In this GitHub repo, you'll find grab-and-go resources to help you host your own workshop.
