With NETLAB+, your students train on real IT equipment and virtual machines. NETLAB+ provides an environment through which students may schedule and complete lab exercises for information technology courses. Pod and lab design tools give you options to devise custom curriculum.
Your organization is committed to sustaining or growing an IT training program with hands-on access for learners both within and outside the classroom. You want to control access to your system and configure your resources to best suit your needs. The wide variety of content available through NETLAB+, developed by NDG and through collaboration with vendor partners, can be used to complement and enhance your curriculum.
NDG Online is a platform for online learning aimed at developing IT professionals. It offers a growing selection of online courses and labs featuring coursebooks, lab exercises, and assessments. NDG Online implements a "practice as you read" approach to learning.
With no long-term commitment or administrative overhead, NDG Online is a great option for your organization to buy just what you need to deliver a quality IT training experience to your learners, on a course-by-course basis.
