A while back I started working with the Microsoft Virtual Labs team to explore the possibility of turning their labs into videos that customers could watch BEFORE doing the labs. The video version can contextualize the labs and provide for a Watch Before You Do opportunity as well as serve as reference in case users need a playback during the actual lab exercise.
Below, we have made available a subset of the Microsoft Virtual Labs (EXPRESS). These are quick labs that allow customers to see specific capabilities of our development platform. I hope you enjoy it, give us feedback and remember: One Virtual Lab A Day, Keeps Obsolescence Away :-)
