Improvements to Microsoft IT Academy Members Portal


The redesigned My Academy benefits page will provide a consolidated view of all program benefits and enable you to explore all the great resources and academic discounts available to your institution.

The new site can be used by both educators and administrators to quickly access and activate your benefits.

My Academy - Curriculum

* Assign, manage, and use E-Learning This is perhaps our biggest improvement. You no longer need to request access codes to enter the Instructor Learning Management System (LMS). You can now access the LMS from the My Academy page or directly from the Web without an access code. The system also transmits your IT Academy member ID for you when you enter the LMS.
