I saw this flash up on twitter the other day and when I have looked at it again I realised that this was released quite a while ago but it’s always good to refresh information. The original link went to here which actually gives a very succinct summary of the training course
it covers these sections
- Introduction to the Dynamics CRM 2011 Training Course
- Solutions in Dynamics CRM 2011
- User Experience Extensibility
- Visualizations and Dashboards
- WCF Web Services
- LINQ and oData
- Client Programming
- SharePoint and CRM
- Upgrading from CRM 4.0 to CRM 2011
- Dynamics Marketplace
The course is based around the excellent channel 9 videos and although it downloads 127 megs of data the videos are not downloaded and when you click on them it basically streams them off the internet. I felt this was a bit disappointing because you might want to work on this offline but then really everyone is online these days.
I had to use CRM 2011 whilst it was in beta and these videos were extremely helpful, especially in terms of understanding OData, LINQ, solutions, WCF and Plugins.
