While recently attending Microsoft TechEd North America, one of the things I spent time educating attendees was on Microsoft Virtual Academy. For those of you unfamiliar with Microsoft Virtual Academy, it’s a new and TOTALLY FREE eLearning tool that will help you get up to speed on a wide array of Microsoft technologies.  All you need is your Live ID and you can sign up here.  If you don’t have a Microsoft Live ID, don’t worry, they’re free too, so go ahead and sign up.

Microsoft Virtual Academy steps you through learning about various Microsoft technologies with good technical depth, and since it’s an eLearning platform, you can do it on your own time or schedule.  Technologies you can learn about include Windows Server 2012, System Center 2012, Office 365, Virtualization, and MUCH MUCH more.

Another great thing about it is that it comes from us, the company that actually wrote the software you’re interested in learning about, you you know the content that is there is technically sound.  I’d encourage you to sign up and check it out, the feedback we’ve received numerous times was that the platform is so good, its shocking that it’s actually FREE.

In addition, I just updated the Microsoft Download Evaluation Resource Center with the latest downloads for Windows Server 2012 RC and System Center 2012. Check it out!

Enjoy!
