Microsoft Officially Launches The Mixer Academy

Microsoft launched a new aspect to the Mixer platform this week as streamers and viewers were introduced to Mixer Academy. Right now, all you have to do is visit this link with your Mixer account and check out the Mixer Handbook. It will give you a gist of how the Academy works before the launch, as it will help you become a Streamer, Moderator or a “Power User”. Basically, its a guide to showing you how to do the best in whatever role you choose, which means anything beyond lurking in the background and watching. So for those active in the first two areas, it could totally help up your game to a degree. If you’re a viewer, it will be interesting to see what tips they give you beyond watching and donating. Here’s a snippet from the announcement.
