Try ElevateU while working remotely

While it can be challenging to make the shift to working remotely, this is an opportunity to expand your knowledge and brush up on skills. 

We are encouraging benefit-eligible MSU employees to use elevateU, a free learning resource that is available 24/7, to continue their professional development while working from home. A variety of resources are available in mobile friendly formats and include courses, videos, books, audio books, and more.

Resources cover a range of topic areas, including productivity (desktop) tools, leadership and management development, communication strategies, project management and more. You will also find content to help you make the shift to working remotely. As you consider different content, we encourage you to think about your development plan for the year and build from there.
