Mixer Academy Goes Live

Microsoft today announced the availability of Mixer Academy, a new resource for building your Mixer expertise.

“We’re always looking at new and interesting ways to help support every member of the Mixer community on their journey so that ultimately, you always have the tools you need in order to be empowered and successful,” Microsoft’s Adam Harris writes in the Mixer Blog. “That’s why today we’re thrilled to unveil Mixer Academy, a brand-new program, where you can build your Mixer expertise, complete courses, and earn badges for your profile to show off to your community.”

Mixer Academy is available on the web. From this site, you can access the following features.

Mixer Handbook. This help document explains what to expect from Mixer Academy, which today comprises of course tracks: Streamer, Moderator and Power User.

Streamer course. This track will help those who wish to create their own community. “Here, you’ll learn some basic pointers on how to grow your stream, community, social media presence, and even a few tips on how to grow your professional network,” Harris notes.

Moderator course. This track helps you get up to speed with the tools you’ll need to help your fellow streamers and get more information about what to expect from the moderator experience.

    <p>Sadly, I think the Mixer service will be in the long run canceled. Microsoft came late in that market too. So it's very difficult to compete against Twitch and Youtube. Even getting Ninja to Mixer did not created the expected advertising.</p>
