With powerful computer-based exercises, lab simulations and in-depth remediation capabilities, LabConnection provides a uniquely integrated supplement to hands-on networking courses, and can be used both as a virtual lab and homework assignment tool. LabConnection supports Cengage Learning's MCITP GUIDE TO MICROSOFT WINDOWS SERVER 2008, SERVER ADMINISTRATION textbook and MCTS Certification Exam #70-646, 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.
