Class on Demand Launches into Online Training World(2)

  • Class on Demand, a provider of professional educational products for creative markets, recently made their debut in the world of IT and online training. In conjunction with their new training partner, Versatile Communications, Class on Demand has launched an online IT learning platform that emulates the training methodology of Class on Demand’s video-based curriculum. The technology includes a secured streaming video server that employs Microsoft’s® Silverlight® DRM technology, and offers a flexible payment engine, allowing the purchase of entire courses or individual modules/chapters.

The first set of training courses that Class on Demand will broadcast via the online learning platform is “Integrating a HP® ProCurve and Cisco® Network.” This first set, delivered by industry expert John Lancaster, will provide students with over ten hours of in-depth lessons, which are broken down into three distinct modules on the technical architecture of both Cisco and HP ProCurve networks. Lancaster’s instruction encompasses the integration, configuration and management of network switches through the use of VLANs, Link Aggregation, Spanning Tree, Rapid-PVST+ and MSTP. The training course offers IT professionals the opportunity to integrate HP ProCurve and Cisco switches into the same environment.

Class on Demand will migrate their existing library of media training courses to the new online platform, offering titles available for purchase in both streaming video delivery formats and DVD-ROM formats. The convenient on-demand availability of these training courses eliminates the need to schedule costly or time consuming travel and makes the most of modern AV technology. Class on Demand’s new online learning platform is the quintessential training tool for any network professional.
