Redeeming Microsoft Educator Community Promotion Codes

Redeeming Your Microsoft Promotion Code

within the Microsoft Educator Community

The final comprehension checkpoint in our Microsoft webinar was the redemption of a Promotion Code. Points and badges are awarded by Microsoft as you take part in activities on the Educator Community site. You also get points for webinar and conference presentations when Microsoft Certified Trainers issue promotion codes. Once redeemed, the codes add points to your profile which puts you on the road to earning badges in the Microsoft Educator Community. Feel free to share all of your tracked activity as part of your professional learning documentation.

Here is an example of a badge you can earn:

Certified Microsoft Innovative Educator
