Tips & Tricks on Using Skillpipe for Organizing Your Digital Bookshelf


Skillpipe® is the Microsoft Digital Textbook Reader

Microsoft made a big step to enable digital transformation and collaborative learning when they added the opportunity for a digital courseware for their titles a few years ago. ITCE’s students have been enjoying the Digital Microsoft Official Courses (DMOCs) in the last 3 years and the reason why we introduced them is that they benefit our customers in the following ways:

  • They are not no longer stuck to a heavy book;
  • They automatically receive the new versions and updates of the titles that they have in their Digital Library;
  • They can access their books at any time and place they want;
  • They can share and comment questions with other students;
  • They can see highlighted materials or comments of their trainers.

By using Microsoft’s digital courseware, students can also make use of Skillpipe® – the Microsoft Digital Textbook Reader. One of the most frequently asked questions by Skillpipe® users is how they organize courses in their bookshelf. So, we would like to share some Tips and Tricks, which Courseware Marketplace have prepared to ensure a seamless and structured experience in using Skillpipe®.
