A Learning Roadmap steps new-to-technology or experienced IT Pros through the set of published text or multimedia resources to build prerequisite, introductory (Level 100), intermediate (Level 200), advanced (Level 300), and expert (Level 400) knowledge and
experience for a technology, feature, product, or solution. They are designed to reduce technical ramp-up time by providing a focused, customized, self-study-based learning plan.
Watch the following for a short overview.
A Learning Roadmap can consist of the following sections:
Level 100 (introductory)
Level 200 (intermediate)
Level 300 (advanced)
Level 400 (expert)
Each section contains an ordered set of learning objectives to understand or experience a specific element of the overall
technology, feature, product, or solution. Each step describes the knowledge requirements, gives pointers to resources (Microsoft Web content or other published content, such as books), and lists learning objectives and
areas of information that should be understood. When you are comfortable that you meet the requirements in the learning objective, you can move on to the next step.
