What is a “Jump Start” course?
A “Jump Start” course is “team-taught” by two expert instructors in an engaging radio talk show style format. The idea is to deliver readiness training on strategic and emerging technologies that drive awareness at scale before Microsoft Learning develops mainstream Microsoft Official Courses (MOC) that map to certifications. All sessions are professionally recorded and distributed through MS Showcase, Channel 9, Zune Marketplace and iTunes for broader reach.
There is a very impressive jump start course which showcases the topic on Virtualization for VMware Professionals, visit http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/showcase/details.aspx?uuid=ffec8a0d-bf7f-4374-b033-216f47278bde
