Hey TLG fans,

On the heels of consolidating the TLG content guidance and templates into the TechNet Wiki via the Wiki: Creating and Publishing Test Lab Guide Content portal page and associated articles, I have also consolidated the additional resources (Microsoft Word and Microsoft PowerPoint files) into a single location.

The new Test Lab Guide (TLG) Content Creation Kit in the TechNet Gallery is a zipped file containing the following:

  • ModularTLGTemplate.DOCX – A Microsoft Word document with placeholder text and the basic structure for modular TLGs.
  • TLGLabDiagrams.PPTX – PowerPoint slides with the icons and figures for TLG lab diagrams.
  • TLGStackDiagrams.PPTX – PowerPoint slides with blocks in the correct colors for individual and product or feature TLG stack diagrams.
  • HyperVConfigArticleDiagrams.PPTX – PowerPoint slides showing examples of Hyper-V configuration diagrams.
  • Video_TLG_Overview_Template.PPTX – PowerPoint slides with placeholder text and the basic structure for TLG overview videos, using the previous icon set.
  • Video_TLG_Overview_Template_NewIcons.PPTX – PowerPoint slides with placeholder text and the basic structure for TLG overview videos, using the new icon set.
  • Video_TLG_2012BaseConfig_Example_Practice.PPTX – An abbreviated version of the PowerPoint slide deck used to create the Windows Server 2012 Base Configuration TLG overview video, with script text and animations.
  • Video_HyperV_2012BaseConfigTLG.PPTX - The PowerPoint slide deck used to create the Windows Server 2012 Base Configuration in Hyper-V overview video, with script text and animations.

Detailed guidance and step-by-step instructions for creating your own TLG and Hyper-V configuration overview videos is on its way!

 

Enjoy (the kit, but without the kaboodle)!
