Thanks for this. I went through the list of tools on the MSFT site and parsed them out to teachers at my school appropriately. I think the whole package might be overwhelming but in chunks it could be quite useful. This is a good example of the things that Microsoft employees create that get lost sometimes even though they are amazingly useful.
