For those who haven't yet tried the Vision self-paced labs, they are well worth a look!

I expected simple VMWare Player shortcuts on the desktop, so what I saw impressed the hell out of me. The desktop just has an IE shortcut where you register to use the VMs with a username and password. You can then select you lab and in the background on a server you own VMs are generated. The dual-screen setup also allows you to throw up the lab pdf on one screen, whilst you get to work on the other.

These VMs are accessed through the browser -nothing is local. This means you can do half-an-hour over lunch, logout and come back later to your VMs just as you left them.

This is a sterling service, and a very practical solution to providing Vision labs when large blocks of free time are hard to come by!

There are currently 5 labs on there, and more labs are added daily. This is the first of its kind at Vision, so try it out (and leave your email address for feedback!)

No doubt - Symantec did a tremendous investment to make these labs this convenient and cool.

Wish I'd be there as you did. It is so sad, that Labs are not available for online viewing and scripts are available for attendees only. We discussed this already with Leslie, but I still need them.. or at least similar stuff.

Hi Volo,

If you just fire a PM to someone who has been to Vision I'm sure they'll get some labs docs off in an email to you...
