Introducing Microsoft Labs Online!

Microsoft Labs Online brings world-class Microsoft experts right to your location via your own desktop or laptop.

With Microsoft Labs Online, you will receive an unparalleled learning experience with a live instructor and digital material at your finger tips, before and after the class to reinforce your learning. It's the ultimate classroom at half the price!

As many students prefer classroom learning environments, organizations do not have the resources to send all their employees so elearning has emerged a strong training tool. However, elearning lacks the interactive, live atmosphere of students look for in a classroom. MS Labs Online blends the benefits of classroom training with the convenience and affordability of elearning.

MS Labs Online is live learning with virtual classroom instruction. It was designed to bring the benefits of traditional instructor-led training to the desktop and help organizations overcome geographic and technological barriers. Over the years, many learning centers have implemented learning styles such as MS Labs Online. It has been proven that the same level of learning can be achieved with expert-led training over the internet as live, in-person classroom training.

Just as in a traditional classroom, the students are open to interact and ask questions throughout the course. This interaction will be through a live chat between the MCT and the students.

    Go online to access course information up to 4 weeks after class is over to reinforce your learning, prepare for an exam or work through an example. Even if you missed a class day, the online labs and material are modular so you can jump around the modules without completing the previous one.
