Hybrid learning

In hybrid learning, you take online courses and have the support of online webinars held by an expert. After successfully completing the online course, you will receive a Microsoft certificate of completion. The course starts with a kickoff webinar that presents the outline of the program and the study methods, and gets you started with your studies. The program includes online sessions in which an expert teaches and illustrates course topics, which help you progress in your studies. The online courses include modules that are appropriately sized for completion in everyday life or alongside work. The modules include instructional videos, tests, links to additional materials, multiple-choice quizzes, and similar assignments, to ensure learning success.

The studies require you to be systematic and to work independently. You should, therefore, schedule the online sessions and the time needed for self-study in your calendar, to ensure that your studies progress on time.
