Microsoft has for long been offering free limited access Microsoft Azure Passes for MOC course requirements. The Passes could only be obtained by authorized Microsoft Learning Partners through the Courseware Marketplace.
However, Microsoft recently decided to discontinue Azure Passes for many MOC courses. Almost all the courses, barring a few, won’t be accompanied by Azure Passes and they cannot be obtained via the Courseware Marketplace anymore. This change makes it particularly important for Learning Partners to work with a reliable and experienced ALH partner for both Azure Pass based and managed labs.
CloudLabs is an experienced Authorized Lab Hoster for Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC) Courses and the good news is, Learning Partners can now acquire labs directly from CloudLabs while also availing discounts. It is also the only Authorized Lab Hoster to support the DP-203 course without Azure Pass since its launch in February 2021.
We are offering Azure Pass based MOC Labs for courses including AZ-140, AZ-400, MS-720, PL-400, PL-500, SC-200, and SC-300.
As a virtual hands-on labs platform, CloudLabs offers an integrated solution for creating and delivering interactive learning experiences. It enables learners to gain practical skills and experience through a host of platform-specific features and benefits to Microsoft Learning Partners. They are:
- Managed Azure and M365: CloudLabs provides fully managed labs hosted in commercial Azure subscriptions including Microsoft cloud software licenses. This eliminates the need for Azure Pass/Trials for any lab experience.
- Lab Validation: CloudLabs validates learners’ work by assessing their lab environments. The validation features can be used to monitor student progress and lab completion. Students can self-assess their lab progress and correct mistakes. Similarly, the wholesome instructor controls shadow learners’ labs, review progress, and provide targeted feedback.
- Instructor Controls: MOC course instructors can monitor lab progress of trainees and provide real-time guidance with CloudLabs’ ‘shadow labs’ feature. It enables a look-over-the-shoulder experience like a real classroom.
- Fixed Pricing Model: CloudLabs eliminates the need for Azure Cloud Trials, Azure Pass, or existing subscriptions for learning partners. You also need not worry about cloud spends as cloud costs are included.
- Scalability: With CloudLabs, Microsoft Learning Partners can easily scale their training and learning programs to meet the demands of their learners. The platform allows learners to access labs from any location and at any time. This hassle-free and rapid scalability helps Learning Partners attract and retain more learners, making their training programs more profitable.
- Reduced Costs: CloudLabs eliminates the need for expensive hardware, software, and infrastructure to deliver hands-on training.
- Flexibility: The platform enables Learning Partners to offer a highly flexible and customizable learning experience. It allows learners to access labs in different formats, such as self-paced, instructor-led, or virtual instructor-led, depending on their learning preferences.
- Improved Learning Outcomes: CloudLabs offers a highly interactive and immersive learning experience that improves the retention of learners. It allows them to apply their knowledge in practical scenarios, making it easier for them to apply knowledge in real life.
In conclusion, CloudLabs offers Microsoft Learning Partners a powerful and feature-rich platform to provide their learners with an engaging and immersive learning experience.
