Employees of Jacobs University are eligible to access E-Learning courses online at Microsoft.com. These courses are meant to help our members to make best use of Microsoft technologies.

(thumbs up) At the time of writing this, hundreds of courses are available, covering use of Microsoft Office products and Microsoft Windows!

(tick) See the page Microsoft E-Learning Program Courses Catalogue (requires employee login to teamwork) for a full list at time of writing! After registering and logging in (see below), check the online course catalogue for the list of available courses.

(lightbulb) You can access these courses from everywhere on the Internet, you don't have to be within the Jacobs University network! In addition, some courses can be downloaded to be taken while offline.

Please note that the access code we have received from Microsoft can accommodate a limited number of users from Jacobs University, and is available only to employees. Do not share the code with unauthorized users: this violates Jacobs University's license agreement with Microsoft.
