Microsoft Imagine Academy e-Learning Resources
The University subscribes to the Microsoft Imagine Academy which provides all students and staff with access to self-service e-learning courses covering a wide range of Microsoft software products. The courses are provided through an online e-learning portal which can be accessed via a web-browser at any location (on campus, at home etc).
The Microsoft Imagine Academy includes courses for beginners and experienced users to develop their skills and also provides resources for those interested in gaining Microsoft certifications.
Returning users can go directly to the Imagine Academy using the button below.
When you login the top of the screen will show that the current subscription has expired. You will need to use the drop down menu under your name at the top right of the screen (shown below). Click "Redeem enrollment code" and enter the code "EZ3L5YELMZYGW5".
Once you have logged in use the same drop down menu and select "Switch organisation". Select the University of Portsmouth that is highlighted and you will be able to see your previous activity from the expired subscription.
