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 you 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!
