I received the following announcement about Learning Snacks last week. Since I am out today (minor surgery) and looking for posts for this week this was a natural. :-) Plus of course I love the idea of short presentations that have potential for introducing concepts to programming classes, system management classes, network management classes and people who just want to keep up with the technology.

Learning Snacks are short, interactive presentations about popular topics created by Microsoft Learning experts. Each Snack is delivered by using innovative Microsoft Silverlight technology and includes various media, such as animations and recorded demos. At the end of each free presentation, you can view more Snacks, learn more about the topic, or visit a related Web site.
