Silverlight is one of the project options you have  when you work with  visual web developer (2008 and up)
Generally speaking , Silverlight claims to have the same strength, richness , performance and ease of use as Adobe Flash
So, go for learning the  visual web developer and take a good tutorial to understand Silverlight at http://www.silverlight.net/learn/tutorials/
