A learning roadmap guides novice or new-to-technology IT Pros through the prerequisite knowledge and the body of published content for a specific technology or end-to-end scenario. Learning roadmaps are organized based on the 100 (introductory)/200 (intermediate)/300 (advanced) level system used by many colleges. Each step in the learning roadmap describes the knowledge set, provides pointers to resources (Microsoft Web content or other published content, such as books), and lists learning objectives and areas of information that should be understood before moving on to the next step.
The intent of a learning roadmap topic is to reduce IT Pro ramp-up time by providing a focused, self-study-based learning plan that is customized for a technology or end-to-end scenario.
Here are two examples of learning roadmaps for Windows networking technologies:
· Windows Firewall with Advanced Security

Please take a look. Is this something you or someone else in your organization would use to learn about a new technology? Are there improvements that we can make to the learning roadmaps?
If you have comments, please leave them in this blog post.
