Microsoft provides a wealth of enterprise tools within the Office 365 ecosystem. The amount of features available can be quite overwhelming. There’s a lot going on, of course, the essentials like Word, Excel, OneNote, but also Office Online, SharePoint, Yammer, and Exchange. If your organization has already deployed Office 365 Pro Plus or is in the midst of migrating from old versions, Microsoft has an exclusive opportunity for customers with active subscriptions to take advantage of free training to help employees optimize their knowledge and productivity.
Free Office Pro Plus Training
Microsoft’s pitch for this training includes the following:

The new training portal powered by what Microsoft calls the MLX (Modern Learning Experiences) platform provides e-Learning courses for Office 365 Pro Plus subscribers with a targeted catalog of training material. To get started, just log in and begin taking Office 365 online training courses.
Office 2016 launched in September and includes many improvements that target enterprise customers such as Outlook Groups, Email Attachments, built in Power Query support, and real-time collaboration. The Office Team recently started a program similar to the Windows Insider program called Office Insider which gives customers early access to new features and functions before they are generally released. Office 2016 should be available to Office 365 Pro Plus subscribers starting early spring 2016, so these courses should help you get up to speed when your organization starts deploying the latest version.
