Cloning Functionality for Exams & Hands-on Labs

Creating Custom Exams and Hands-on Labs Is Now Even Easier

With Cloud Academy’s Content Engine™, you can address organizational skill gaps by creating custom Exams and Hand-on Labs specific to your enterprise requirements. But let’s face it: Creating custom Exams and Hands-on Labs is highly rewarding, but it can be a challenging, time-consuming operation.

That’s why we’re excited to announce a recently released feature that makes creating custom Exams and Hands-on Labs so much easier: Cloning Functionality.

The new cloning functionality allows you to copy Exams and Hands-on Labs already crafted by our expert trainers. This will allow you to start with existing content and add or remove content to tailor it to your individual requirements. By cloning our industry-leading content, you can seamlessly create high-quality, custom assessments for your enterprise.

To start using the Exam cloning feature, simply go to your Cloud Academy Dashboard > click “Cloud Academy” > “Content Engine.”

Why build a custom Hands-on Lab?

Tutorials alone can’t teach you to operate in complex cloud environments. Hands-On Labs meaningfully reinforce knowledge gained in our Learning Paths by guiding and challenging you in the console or in the command line. By cloning and building a custom exam, you can ensure the steps align with your network and enterprise requirements.

Easily clone a Hands-on Lab to:

  • Add or delete existing steps
  • Easily deliver top-notch, tailored Hands-on Lab skill assessments
  • Leverage high-quality content provided by Cloud Academy
  • Reuse and customize Hands-on Labs already created by your company
  • Integrate custom steps specific to your company requirements
