Microsoft Corp. has disclosed plans to enter the corporate electronic-learning arena after revealing in June 2003 that it is to provide its Software Assurance Corp. (SA) customers with proprietary content. The material, which concentrates on Microsoft's desktop and server technologies, will be given away as part of the cost of the SA licensing programme. Ian Turner, business development manager for Microsoft Press says, 'We are extremely keen for customers to get the best value out of our products and the best way to achieve this is through training.'
