What is MVA?

Successful technologists never stop learning and great technology never stops evolving. Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA) offers online Microsoft training delivered by experts to help technologists continually learn, with hundreds of courses, in 11 different languages. Our mission is to help developers, knowledgeable IT professionals and advanced students learn the latest technology, build their skills, and advance their careers. MVA is free of charge, and the entire service is hosted on Windows Azure.

Become an MVA member so that you can earn points for your learning, achieve different levels of badges and status relative to others in your country or around the world, and get certificates when you complete an entire course. Your personal dashboard helps you track your progress against your personal learning plans.

MVA learning opportunities combine on-demand courses and live events:

  • On-demand courses help you learn at your own pace, and when the time is right for your busy schedule.

  • MVA’s exciting live events include Jump Start training and MVA Live Q&A where you can interact with experts, and a worldwide audience of learners from around the world. Our instructors and subject matter experts will answer the questions you pose in real time chat sessions so that you can apply what you learn right away.

Developers who want to learn how to build apps for the web, Windows or Windows Phone can explore our courses on App Development training, HTML5 training, C# training, and Windows Phone app development.
