e-Learning: Free ASP.NET AJAX Training

[Via Brad Abrams] In the Microsoft e-learning developer catalog (web section) a new online course on "Developing Enhanced Web Experiences with Microsoft® ASP.NET AJAX Extensions" is available for free.

I have been playing around with ASP.NET AJAX since the CTP's and beta's but I'm going to block some time early next week to go through this online course. I'm sure there will be some useful content that I can reuse when doing my web experience workshop at the end of next week.

For all web developers AJAX is a hot topic these days. This is an excellent (and free!) way to increase your knowledge on AJAX technologies.
