Microsoft Virtual Academy now features learning resource for open source tech

Compared to last year, Microsoft Virtual Academy is now buzzing with great new content especially on open source technologies. Here's a list of courses offered on open source tech:
Introduction to Programming with Python
Building Responsive UI with Bootstrap
Building Apps with Node.js Jump Start
Introduction to jQuery
Single Page Applications with jQuery and AngularJS
JavaScript Fundamentals for Absolute Beginners
Open Source Questions Answered
Mobile Web Application Development
The Modern Web Platform Jump Start
HTML5 & CSS3 Fundamentals: Development for Absolute Beginners

I like that they now show the date on which a course was published. Due to the evolving nature of the products, the courses can go stale due to dramatic changes in newer versions and watching out for the date of publication helps in deciding if a particular course is right for you. 

I wish the page layout was better accessible. It is not possible to link to a section of the course. On that aspect, I think the Pluralsight video learning website, presents their course information better. I noticed that the courses on MVA are available on Channel 9 as well & there you have the advantage of choosing more video download formats especially f you're bandwidth constrained.
