The purpose of this demo is to introduce you to the web-based course content interface, and also to demonstrate how a course's hands-on lab exercises are integrated with the course to reinforce key concepts as you learn them.
Prior to viewing the demo course, it would be good for you to understand LiveFire Labs' online training model.
How It Works - Practice on a Real Server
You will use two windows while taking the course. One will be your preferred web browser, which is used to access the course content, and the other is an SSH client that is used to securely connect to a lab system to complete the course's hands-on exercises. (The "Getting Started" email you receive after registering for a course includes a download link to a free SSH client for the PC, and you already have one on your computer if you use a Mac.)
Throughout the course content there will be hands-on lab exercises to reinforce key learning concepts. When you encounter an exercise, you will switch to the SSH window that is logged in on the lab system to complete the exercise following the detailed instructions provided in the course material. An answer key containing solutions to all of the lab exercises is provided with the course material.
