At Red Rocks Community College in Denver, Colorado, USA, students participating in the Microsoft IT Academy Program are getting practical experience in the classroom using Microsoft Official Academic Course (MOAC) virtual labs. If they’re working toward a database administration certification, they’re building and administering databases in class; if they’re earning a developer certification, they’re writing software in class. This practical experience better prepares students to perform the duties employers will ask them to perform in the future.
