DIY and you

Hey folks,

So I am the core developer of the Universal Classroom Foundation (UCF) which is the underlying design of our in-person/local hardware deliveries but also our self-paced online offerings.

For me, this provides a new avenue of communication for our RHA partners to poke/interact with me about ideas/challenges that you are facing. I want to hear from not only instructor/facility folks but also our RHA students. I have almost three decades of experience with our traditional delivery partners worldwide but my real joy has always been about the students. I want to share the future that is Open Source with the world and have always been excited about making that happen for *everyone*.

Feel free to ping me here or privately. I want to be your advocate in your technical journey!

Re: DIY and you

There was a recent change to video classrooms. Now when I login, from either Safari, Chrome, or Firefox, I receive a message that 

Popup Blocker Check  FAIL

Flash check FAIL

I can continue beyond this but what content issues would I have by not having flash installed?

Re: DIY and you

Hi RALII,

I need assistance trying to set up the lab environment. What I'd like to accomplish is creating an OVA or set of OVAs that students can run in VMware Workstation or Player to create the lab environment for RHELv8. This way students can take them to work on labs outside of the classroom. Another RHA instructor created a kiosk as an OVA where you can run the lab environment. You boot the virtual machine in VMware Workstation to the foundation environment. Then you boot the workstation or server inside the foundation. It works pretty well. All the grading and reset scripts work great in the kiosk. I need an updated one for RHELv8. It would be great if RHA would provide this for those that do not subscribe to NetLab.

Re: DIY and you

I also agree with this one, it's like taking home your own labs Smiley Happy

Re: DIY and you

Hey Mike,

So I am curious as to what you would like is to provide versus Gilmore/IC which are my current endpoints.

I would like to redesign the labs to more accessible to RHA....

Re: DIY and you

Hi Rob,

I have my issue resolved thanks to one of our fellow RHA instructors. The lab environment can be converted into a stand-alone kiosk saved as an OVA file. The OVA file can be shared with your students and opened in VMware Player or Workstation. Students may then conduct all of their RHA labs on their own computer at school or home. The lab goes with them and is not confined to the classroom. To run the kiosk requires 8 GB RAM plus overhead for the host OS - so a total of about 10 GB RAM should be sufficient.

Re: DIY and you

Hi Mike,

I believe the RHEL8 RHCE DIY classroom materials should be on Gilmore for download, though I seem to recall someone saying it was hidden under dualboot somehow? I am not sure whether the books have been rolled out yet or not.

Please let me know if you cannot get to the classroom materials.
