CloudSwyft: What are Hands-On Labs?

CloudSwyft-Powered Hands-On Labs are Virtual Lab Environments (whether Compute Lab Environments or Azure Cloud Sandbox Portal environments) that allow students or learners access live fully functional practice environments through the browser attached and aligned with each Course Module or Lesson.


Technology Skills learning and development cannot just be achieved by watching MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) videos, lectures, presentation slides, webinars or classroom-based sessions ALONE. 


That is why through our Hands-On Labs, we are making your tech upskilling journey better for you! Everyone should learn technology skills, by doing!


Reminder: CloudSwyft’s Hands-On Lab Environments are best to launch and access on the latest Google Chrome browser with a stable internet connection.
