Since, I’m a big fan of a Oracle Ravello Cloud and most of my labs are hosted in my vExpert Ravello Cloud account, I thought to write this article to share this feature with my followers to show how to use the Oracle Ravello Cloud platform as a training platform. Also, there are few posts here in my blog and you can find all of these posts in here.
First of all you have to build the environment which you want to share with the students using this Oracle Ravello Cloud platform and you have to save it as a “Blueprint” in your resource library. At the first stage it might be a bit of a work if you are going to build the environment from the scratch, if you have a pre-built environment you can use that environment for your lab after saving as a Blueprint.
Simply click on the “Save as Blueprint” button to save your environment to the library as a blueprint.
Provide a name and “Create” the Blueprint
You can see this message after the successful saving of the application
Once the application has saved as a blueprint click on the “Training Platform” option at the top of the window as shown below, it will take you to a new window
In the new window click on “CREATE CLASS” option
For the first time you have to create a course to host in a class room, you might get this window and click on “create a new course”
Provide a name and a description to your course and add the saved blueprint to include the infrastructure for your class
Select the saved blueprint from the list
After adding the blueprint complete the course creation
Now, create the class using the created course.
Provide the details such as Class Name, Description, Trainer Name, Activated duration, Time Zone of the class, Cost Bucket, Application Optimization and the Hosted Datacenter.
Add the students to the crated class room, if you have a list of details in a .csv file you can directly upload it and add the students
Save the details
You can generate a student portal link to sent to the students so they can directly access the class infrastructure when the class is live and operable. Also, single class can have more than one application and separate portal link required to access the applications.
Copy the “Student Portal Link” and you can share it with the students
When student get the access portal link, class room infrastructure will be accessible from the browser. Back end application can be Start, Stopped, Restarted and Powered off from the browser
This is one of the really cool features which can have with this platform and I encourage you to try that out.
