With powerful computer-based exercises, simulations and in-depth remediation capabilities, LabConnection™ provides a uniquely integrated supplement to hands-on A+ PC repair courses, and can be used both as a virtual lab and homework assignment tool. LabConnection supports Cengage Learning's A+ Guide to Software textbook and the A+ IT certification exams, and offers remediation towards both. LabConnection, by dti Publishing, is a system that enables exercises and labs to be embedded within the curriculum and instruction. The system is designed for instructor led learning but can also be built into a distance learning course. The standalone DVD version allows use of the simulation product without the necessity of online access. LabConnection is also available as online and institutional versions with full learning management capabilities.
