C# Enters a new realm of weird

I thought my C# course was going pretty well, being self-paced and with minimal assignments to work towards. Yesterday there was an email sent from the instructor, apparently now we have a load of stuff to do through the Microsoft IT Academy, woohoo! I remember Microsoft IT Academy from when I had to use it to prepare for my certifications a long long time ago. I hated it then, and it is even worse now. There are now interact lab things to do, oh so much fun.
