Tech skills perfected with online practice labs
The ongoing tech revolution has redefined the education landscape. Computer science is the one of the most sought after degrees in higher education, at the moment. In fact, the Obama White House had predicted that by 2020, there would be around 1.4 million computer science related jobs available in the US. Imagine the scenario worldwide!
With the fast changing nature of technology, students and professionals are scrambling to learn the latest technologies and stay relevant in the workforce. Many are opting for online courses to upskill, which has furthered bolstered the MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) movement. While online courses bode well for theory-oriented subjects, what about those that need practical exposure?
Take the example of Data Science – there is only so much you can learn from instructor-led sessions. An aspiring data scientist must also pull up their sleeves and learn the nitty gritties with practical sessions of R, Hadoop, SQL, Python and so on. So is the case for say, Machine Learning. Practical knowledge goes a long way in equipping the student with the necessary skills.
A student who intends to study with a hands-on approach or a professional looking to update their skills, benefits more from a practice-led technology education. And for this, on-demand online practice labs are the answer.
What’s an online practice lab?
Practice lab is a cloud based solution that provides on-demand lab environments wherein users can experiment and enhance technical skills in a safe manner.
Universities have realized the need for such labs and are using cloud technology to help their students practice the knowledge they acquire from the instructor-led sessions in a safe environment. The student is able to access the lab anytime, anywhere and on any device.
Organizations, too have understood the need for sandboxed environments for training and development of lesser experienced employees and are actively signing up for such cloud based on-demand labs.
CoreStack CLaaS is a self-paced, technical lab environment designed to enhance your learning experience. We offer cloud based, on-demand labs that let you practice the skills learned during instructor led training / e-learning.
