What is a Collab365 Challenge?

Blue Certified Solution

In many cases, our Challenges are built so that you can "learn by doing". To achieve this we follow our B.L.U.E. Framework. Learn why BLUE is a superior way to learn. Here's a summary of the 4 phases.

step 1

BUILD IT

Learners conceptualise and start creating the app during the ‘Build It’ phase. They tap into the Power Platform’s capabilities to design an intuitive and user-friendly interface while meeting the task’s business requirements. This hands-on experience, right from the start, deepens their understanding of the platform and its functionalities.

step 2

LEARN IT

As they move into the ‘Learn It’ stage, learners realise the platform’s intricacies, discovering functionalities they were previously unaware of. This phase provides an immediate feedback loop, allowing learners to correct misconceptions, deepen their understanding, and improve their skills.

step 3

USE IT

In the ‘Use It’ phase, learners experience their creations from a user’s perspective. They test the app, identifying any flaws or usability issues. This hands-on testing and usage phase provides invaluable insights into user experience, an essential aspect of any app development process.

step 4

ENHANCE IT

Finally, during the ‘Enhance It’ stage, learners refine their app based on the feedback and insights gained during testing. This iterative process simulates a real-world development cycle, reinforcing the importance of continual learning and improvement in the technology industry.

"now I get to show off my skills at work!"

I needed to understand Power Apps formulas and have an idea of the why's and order. The coach explained it clearly and put it in terms that made it easy to understand and now I get to show off my skills at work. Not only that, if asked I can explain why I did something instead of saying, "This is what I found online and this should work.", without being able to explain the why it would work.

The pace of the course was great. I was able to complete it between leaving work and before my next call.

The detailed explanations and the short challenges along the way for me to try first before being shown how to successfully complete were fantastic. It was a moment to show that I understood and was comfortable enough with what I had learned.

What do I need to take the challenge?

No Previous skills necessary

We've built the Challenge for anyone to follow along with, so you don't need any previous skills. Knowing a bit about Excel or being a bit 'technically minded' is really helpful but we'll give you what you need along the way.

A PC and Mobile device

To follow along with the building aspects, you will need access to a browser, and the ability to download the Power App app from either the Microsoft, iOS or Google Play stores on your mobile device. It's very easy to install and 100% free. We also show you how, just in case you're unsure. 

Microsoft 365 Tenant (Optional)

To get the most out of the Challenge, you'll want to practice building, sharing and using applications. You'll do this via the Power Platform. You can get access to Microsoft 365 including the relevant Power Platform licenses as part of a free M365 Developer Licence. There's also a very cheap paid alternative called a Microsoft Business Basics licence (around USD $5pcm). Or, you can use your own Microsoft 365 Tenant. 

This training includes:

  • 2 hours of study
  • Access to the Collab365 Academy
  • Success Resources
  • Watch on Desktop or Mobile

After starting my career in the Microsoft 365 space as Power Apps and the Power Platform really started taking off. It became a fantastic opportunity to build a new skill set. I quickly found my love for the tech and since joining the Collab365 Team over 3 years ago - I've built countless apps and solutions to solve pressing business problems. 

As a Collab365 Coach, building solutions and sharing training content via our Academy events has become the career I never expected and I'm enthusiastic to share my processes, builds and more importantly my journey as a Power Apps developer with you!
