A CloudShare class gives students access to personal copies of a customized CloudShare environment at a pre-scheduled time, using an instructor-led or self-paced training platform.
CloudShare supports two types of Classes:
Instructor-led classes where all students participate simultaneously with an instructor during one of more pre-scheduled time periods.
Self-paced classes where each student can access the class at a time that is convenient for them, until the time period set for the class ends.
With CloudShare, you can also create multi-step classes that use different environments for each class, for example, when you want to run separate classes tailored for different stages in a long course.
The general steps to creating a class are:
Create the class, assigning its type, Blueprint, time and duration, environment policy, region, number of students, etc.
Invite students via email – one-by-one or from a prepared list – using a built-in or fully-customized template.
Run the class.
