Übersicht über “Exchange Server 2010 Training” von Trainsignal

imageAls Auszubildender in einer IT-Firma, die erheblichen Stellenwert auf Weiterbildung legt, sind anschauliche und gut zu verstehende Videokurse enorm wichtig. Aufgrund der vielen Prüfungen, die ich in der letzten Zeit absolvierte, sind hochwertige Videokurse angebracht, die in relativ kurzer Zeit viel Wissen verständlich vermitteln. Sehr gut gefällt mir hierbei, dass im Training wirklich von klein auf angefangen wird. Das Bedeutet, dass angefangen bei Voraussetzungen für die Installation, über die Installation bis hin zur Administration alles in übersichtlichen Schritten erklärt wird. Zudem kann man sich auf die Kompetenz des Trainers verlassen, da dieser selbst über nachweisbare Qualifikationen verfügt. J. Peter Bruzzese ist Buchautor und neben seinen anderen Qualifikationen (Triple-MCSE, MCT, MCSA, MCITP, …) ist besonders der “MVP for Exchange” hervorzuheben.

Zur Beschreibung: Der Kurs ist in 40 einzelne englischsprachige Videoclips aufgeteilt, die immer ein spezifisches Segment der Exchange 2010 Architektur beleuchten.

Der zeitliche Rahmen ist pro Video unterschiedlich, überschreitet aber eher selten die Stundengrenze, was dazu führt, dass es leichter fällt, dem Trainer zu folgen und die Teilbereiche besser zu verarbeiten. Zudem lassen sich somit auch kleine Zeitfenster sinnvoll ausfüllen, ohne dabei ein Video unterbrechen zu müssen.

Jedes Video beginnt mit einem Überblick über die zu behandelnden Themen, worauf ein praktischer Abschnitt folgt. Im praktischen Teil wird das reelle Arbeiten mit dem Exchange Server veranschaulicht, wodurch man selbst die Situationen gut in einem Testsystem durchspielen kann, bzw. auch ohne passende Systeme anschauliche Einblicke in den visuellen Aufbau der Exchange-Architektur erhält. Hierbei erklärt J. Peter Bruzzese (Trainer) umfangreich, welche Aktion er momentan durchführt, vermittelt Hintergrundwissen und erörtert Problemstellen. Am Ende erfolgt immer eine Zusammenfassung der besprochenen Themen, die zur Rekapitulation des gesehenen dient.

Überblick: Im folgenden möchte ich noch eine Zusammenfassung der Inhalte geben.

Fazit: Wie bereits der Inhaltsübersicht zu entnehmen ist, bietet der Kurs sehr viele Ressourcen an interessanten Themengebieten an. Durch den übersichtlichen Aufbau, was bei einer solchen Menge an Informationen nicht immer gegeben ist, findet man schnell etwas wieder, falls nochmal ein Thema vertieft werden soll. Somit bleiben die Videos auch für später Interessant.

Ich nutze selbst diesen Kurs momentan zur Vorbereitung auf die Prüfung 70-662 und finde es sehr ansprechend, wie das Wissen anhand Grafiken, Tabellen und Beispiele lebhaft vermittelt wird. Es ist eine sehr gute Art des Lernens und kommt schon nahe an die Erfahrung des “selber Machens” heran.

Deshalb kann ich diesen Kurs nur sehr weiterempfehlen.
