We are delighted to announce the world wide release of the Springboard Windows 7 Deployment Learning Portal on TechNet.
The Springboard Deployment Learning Portal is an online assessment and learning tool, designed to help IT Pros identify their knowledge strengths and information gaps around Windows 7 deployment. Based on interactive assessment responses, the participant is provided targeted learning to help them gain critical deployment know-how, keeping them at the top of their game.
The Springboard Windows 7 Learning Deployment Portal is designed to guide IT Pro’s deployment education by:
The Deployment Learning Portal content and methodology helps to bridge the gap between Springboard’s online managed experience content and formal training.
What languages will it be available in?
It requires a separate registration and login process other than the Windows Live login process used by TechNet, allowing us to understand portal usage by locale and assessment scores.
All the training modules were created by the team that wrote the Windows 7 certification exam, including Preparing Your Deployment, Configuring a Windows 7 Image, Migration and Compatibility Testing. At the end of each module the user will receive learning recommendations based on their score, these recommendations direct IT Pros to the most relevant resources across Springboard, MS Learning and TechNet, and provides next steps to certification. The Springboard Series Deployment Portal can be accessed here.
I completed this earlier in the year (as part of the pilot in the UK) and then quickly went on to pass the MCTS 680 exam. I don't think I would have even contemplated taking the exam without going on this first.
Well done Microsoft, its a great resource and hopefully you can replicate it for other areas of Windows
