Launching 70+ New Courses/Hands-On Labs in April!

Posted on March 29, 2018 by Anthony James Founder/CEOAnthony James Founder/CEO

UPDATE MAY 2018: Thanks to everybody for joining us in the celebration – we hope ya’ll received your swag packs! Congrats to all of you for winning. We’re going to be launching 150+ Courses and Hands-On Labs in July so stay tuned for another month of celebrations, giveaways, and more!

We’ve been receiving many course requests from our students, and we’ve been working hard to answer all of them. While we can’t get to all of them just yet, we’ll start by launching over 70 new Courses and Hands-On Labs for you! *happy dance*

Several times in April, we’ll also be live streaming on YouTube about the latest Course launches and Hands-On Labs. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn to interact and engage with our team. Who knows, Course Authors, celebrities, or even I may be making an appearance!

We’ll be launching:
  • 20 new courses (some refreshes)
  • Hands-On Labs

I’m also very pleased to inform you that the new labs that we’ll be launching this April will be utilizing our new REAL-time grader platform! We’re taking learn-by-doing to a whole new level so if you’ve been enjoying our current hands-on labs, this is something you’ll want to really get your hands on! (you see what I did there?)
As you’re going through these new labs, you’ll be able to see your progress in real time, get graded as you go, and receive tailored instructions or hints for how to go about completing the lab.

Additionally, our new quizzes and practice exams (launched after April 1st) will also be utilizing our brand new (literally completed today) Practice Exams system – V1.0! 

Our team has been working hard to create these new courses and features, so we can’t wait for all of you to start digging in. We’re so excited to bring you along with us on this journey in April and equipping you with the latest and greatest. YOU are our inspiration, and our team can’t thank you enough for all of your recommendations, suggestions, and feedback. Thank you for being a part of the family, and we can’t wait to continue this journey with you. Be on the lookout – we’ve got a lot in store for 2018!
Are you most excited for new Courses or Hands-On Labs?
Don’t forget to follow us on social media and check back here for the latest course updates. We’ll see you around soon!
          
 
In addition to our current features including 6 Cloud Servers for you to spin up and Hands-on Labs for you to gain real-world skills through taking actions in live environments, we’ve got some great Linux Academy content and features (like the new Practice Exams system) coming for you in 2018 that we can’t wait to share with you. Thank you for using Linux Academy and thank you so much for your amazing feedback so far – please keep them coming!
It’s a great time to get started on your training! If you’re not already training with us, we’ve got a 7-days free trial that gets you access to all of our platforms — Linux Academy. We hope to see you on the other side!

Hi guys,
You have DevOps section but here nothing about monitoring and logging. Something about tools like riemann , monit, prometeus, elk etc. Also would like to learn more about tools like Consul, Vault (very interesting to see some practical tasks). Also good to have some courses about messaging systems like rabbit, activeMQ.

for a paid customer, i am finding it quite frustrating getting a teaser of 70courses every other day and not having any visibility of the content. why can’t we just announce it to the paid customers at-least if not public as i can understand you want to drum up new interest/signups.

It could be really good to improve the excersises and hand-on labs, what I mean with this? The following, for example, when you are taking an on-site course for a certification of Red Hat, you have the possibility to “grade” the lab, so you, for example, run a script with the parameter grade, and this is going to check every step you did in the lab, and in that way you are going to have a feedback on what you did wrong or not, allowing in that way to improve.
