Skillsoft Introduces Virtual Practice-Labs for Hands-On, Secure IT Training

We are excited
to announce the availability of Skillsoft Virtual
Practice-Labs! Presented in response to customer demand for virtual lab
learning, this new technology-enabled learning solution provides IT
professionals with hands-on experience with real equipment and applications
through a secure, web-based learning environment. Practice-Labs are available
on-demand anytime and allow learners to gain practical experience with a broad
range of technologies in a safe and risk-free environment.

Skillsoft Virtual Practice-Labs feature a large library that
includes 245 modules aligned with 43 IT certification exams from vendors such
as Microsoft, CompTIA, Cisco and VMware. The labs completely immerse learners
in software and hardware environments, providing a high degree of interactivity
to reinforce core and advanced skills with the ability to repeat tasks as
necessary. Content is presented using hosted technology that provides an
experience similar to a production system, allowing IT professionals to learn and
avoid time-consuming and dangerous rework necessary in an actual environment. 

We are excited to provide our customers
with an additional modality of learning content delivered in a flexible format
as we assist with their continuous learning journey. Skillsoft Virtual
Practice-Labs can mirror almost any hardware or software configuration,
enabling IT professionals to build critical technology skills in safe, virtual environments.
By experimenting with live applications, learners retain valuable skills and
deliver maximum value to their organizations.

Virtual Practice-Labs provide students with 24×7 remote
access to a sandbox environment on live equipment and are available on
Skillport 7.2 and higher and on other learning management systems using
Skillsoft’s Open Learning Services Architecture (OLSA). The practice labs can
be used as standalone learning assets or integrated into blended learning
programs as a complement to Skillsoft’s IT courseware, Skillsoft Books24x7 ITPro
collection and SkillChoice IT collections.
