Better Together: How Content Panda and Microsoft 365 Learning Pathways Work Together
Microsoft 365 learning pathways was developed to focus on driving adoption and change for end users and administrators, delivering more value and greater adoption of Office 365 applications. At Content Panda, we couldn’t be more excited about the available content and playlists.
Many companies work to leverage the most up-to-date Microsoft help, training, and support information, using support.microsoft.com, docs.microsoft.com, and many other sites, but often have difficulty keeping up with the enormous amount of change. They also spend hours of time, energy, and money on help, training, and support content repositories, knowledge bases, wikis, or purchase a learning management system. The problem with all of these options is getting employees to use this expensive content. Employees often forget where to find it, how to login, or just don’t want to lose productivity time searching for answers.
The new Microsoft 365 learning pathways SharePoint Communications Site and web part make keeping up with constantly changing Microsoft adoption and training content easier.
Content Panda is all about giving employees a self-service in-context option without leaving where they are working, across all Office 365 applications as well as any in-house custom applications. Content Panda works for any web application across any technology — one place for every need, at the exact moment one needs it.
We proudly partner with the Microsoft 365 learning pathways team to bring their content and playlists into our in-context and on-demand solution - for any application user interface.
