Do you use Microsoft Partner University?

You should! This is a great resource Microsoft has provided to us as partners. I have been taking online courses on this site for years, but it seems many partners are unaware of the site or have not commited to life long learning. Yes it takes some time and requires some work, but as technology professionals, which we want to consider ourselves, consider it as professional development and log in and learn. Not only can we learn things on many different topics, but they also incent us to do the right thing by allowing us to earn points which translate into FREE STUFF. Here is the latest offer to hit my inbox.

Announcing The Big Easy Offer with up to 10 million partner subsidy dollars available exclusively to Microsoft Partner Program members! The Big Easy Offer covers most of the core products and solutions you sell to your small and medium-size customers. Select from the eight Ready-to-Go Campaigns to help you easily prepare for and promote this offer. Or leverage the customizable materials for the products of your choice as you build solutions that meet your customers' unique needs.

Take the following two webcasts* and pass the final quiz by March 31, 2008 and you will be entered to win one of several fabulous prizes**! Also, the first 975 users to complete the final quiz will earn 20 MPU points***!
