Microsoft recently released Channel 8, an informational site for students. Channel 8 was kicked off July 20th, with a video with Joe Wilson, Director of Academic Evangelism.
From the initial Channel 8 post:
Welcome to Channel 8. Joe Wilson, Director of Academic Evangelism, talks about Channel 8 and what you’ll find here. We’re looking forward to this being a great place for students to connect with Microsoft and each other.
Channel 8 will help round out the existing channels:
- Channel 9 is geared towards developers. In depth knowledge about technology and how products at Microsoft work.
- Channel 10 is the channel for technical enthusiasts. It contains information about games, and general technology oriented information.
I like to think of myself as an advocate for students having the information they need to succeed in the technology industry and I think that Channel 8 is positioned to be an excellent resource for students.
Currently Channel 8 is covering the Imagine Cup in Seoul Korea.
Initial comments for Channel 8 are very promising, and I am looking forward to the content that the Channel has to offer.
