Use Classrooms extension to automate lab delivery

Classrooms extension is an add-on product for virtual training customers. It has a dedicated web interface and REST APIs for:

  • Automatically provisioning, running, and deleting lab environments based on class schedules you define.
  • Performing the bulk operations needed to create multiple lab environments from the same template and add student access.
  • Reusing the same template, VM permissions, and custom content settings for multiple classes.
  • Providing instructors with a class management view for each class that:

    • Displays all of the student lab environments from one window.
    • Grants instructors full access to their students’ lab environments.
