Course Features

Virtual Labs

Virtual labs give students experience practicing and implementing the skills they will learn about in this Server+ course. These labs run on real hardware that enable students to develop the hands-on skills required in the infrastructure industry. Within the sandbox environment, students can make mistakes and see how their actions affect a real system. This is different from a simulated lab where students are led through a simulated environment that has only one solution and a single path to accomplish a given task. A student’s access to a complete software and hardware resource helps them fully engage in discovery, solution finding, and problem solving. They will be able to earn their Server+ certification or final grade with a truly hands-on approach that prepares them for the workforce.

State-of-the-art videos

Ascend Education’s videos are engaging and present the most current content available in infrastructure training. The format of our videos was designed by expert instructional designers in order to increase learning absorption; studies have shown that instructional videos that are less than 6 minutes in length result in improved learning

The video content for this course includes definitions, examples, comparisons, an overview of difficult topics found in the text and thorough demonstrations of what is covered in the material. This format enhances a student’s learning experience and retention, preparing them for their Server+ certification exam and getting them job ready.

Textbook Quality Written Content

Written by leading industry experts, our online Server+ text material is designed to replace your textbook. The easy-to-follow structure of the text makes the life of the instructor and student easier. The detailed text lessons cover all the crucial topics necessary for students to pass their Server+ certification exam and gain the infrastructure knowledge they need in order to advance in their education and career. The written content (along with all other course material) is delivered on a professionally designed LMS that automatically tracks their progress as they complete a given section.

Assessments

This Server+ course includes practice quizzes and a final exam prepared by industry experts. Practice quiz questions are found in each section of the course and will help students know which areas they are understanding well, and which areas they may need to work on before taking their final exam. 

The comprehensive final exam was created to help teachers assess a student’s understanding of the material from the first module to the last. Each quiz and final exam is linked to the instructor gradebook, so a teacher can track each student’s progress and have automatic grading. Instructors can also set the number of tries for each quiz to give students a chance to go back and review material if necessary. These assessments save instructors countless hours of having to prepare and grade quizzes and exams by themselves.

Easy-to-use LMS

Each course is built on our professionally designed Learning Management System (LMS). Ascend Education’s courses can fully integrate with popular LMS’s including Canvas, Blackboard, D2L and others, making it easy to track  progress and manage the learning success of a given student or class. All course materials are integrated using deep linking integration. In this way, it never appears to the student that they have left the “home” environment of their own LMS. In instances where a given school does not have an LMS or allows integration, Ascend is only too happy to host the course inside our own Learning Management System, including delivering all the instructor tools and helpers described here.

Instructor Slides

Instructor slides provide structure for lectures. This Security+ course has a downloadable slide deck that coordinates with instructional material in the course. Teachers can use the slides as they are or make any desired adjustments necessary to fit their planned lecture.
