From 9 AM to 4 PM, Pacific Standard Time (-08:00 UCT) on November 14, 2013, well-known Windows expert Ed Bott (whose Ed Bott Report for ZDnet provides regular fodder for my blog right here) is teaching an upcoming (and free) Jump Start class on Windows 8.1 for the Microsoft Virtual Academy (MVA). The course page includes a registration link, and provides the complete title for this offering, too:
The blurb for the class reads “New features in Windows 8.1 for the enterprise” and the very brief course outline includes the following bullet items (quoted verbatim):
- Windows 8.1 To Go and Mobility
- Deployment and Manageability
- Mobile Device Management Tools
Instructors will also include as-yet un-named “members of the Microsoft Windows team” in addition to the redoubtable Mr. Bott. Even if your organization doesn’t plan to deploy (or pilot) Windows 8.1 any time soon, this course should still be worth attending not only because the coverage is bound to help set directions and plans for potential use, but also because the price is entirely right.
