Remote classroom

Available in select U.S. locations, remote classroom training lets students learn in a Red Hat-authorized training facility, while the instructor teaches the class remotely via video conferencing. Each classroom has a 52" television that incorporates 2-way video and audio with a live instructor. Students see a live video stream of the instructor's lectures and the instructor can see the remote students in their classroom. The continuous audio feed lets students ask questions and participate in the class at all times. Online interaction between the students and the instructor lets the instructor view the students' lab computers and assist them as necessary.

Online Learning content

Our online course content is based on the same content you'd find in our traditional classroom courses, optimized for self-study and including more explanations. Each online workbook includes code snippets and graphics to illustrate the text and aid learning. Each unit also includes a knowledge check, an opportunity for students to validate their comprehension of the material before moving on to the online lab. Students are given immediate feedback as to whether or not they understand what they have just been taught. The course book can be viewed on a mobile device as well as a laptop or desktop computer.


Online Learning labs

For Online Learning, we provide the same high-quality, robust lab environment as our traditional classroom courses. Students can expect to spend as much as half of their time working on hands-on labs. These labs are delivered over the cloud via the same platform we use in our Virtual Classroom training courses. Because of the robustness of these labs, this is the one component of our online learning that must be conducted via a laptop or desktop computer.


Online Learning webinars – for select courses

For additional knowledge, students have access to approximately 30-40 pre-recorded webinars on a variety of topics. Webinars range from 5 to 20 minutes in length and are conducted by senior Red Hat instructors, examiners, and members of our curriculum team. Our webinars can be viewed on mobile devices, as well as a laptop or desktop computer. Online learning webinars are not available for every Red Hat course.
