MOAC Labs Online is a cloud-based environment that enables students to conduct exercises using real Microsoft products. These are not simulations but instead are live virtual machines where faculty and students can perform any activities they would on a local virtual machine. MOAC Labs Online relieves the need for local setup, configuration and most troubleshooting tasks. Rapid changes in software and hardware, authentic job training and experience, and anytime, anywhere access has become the new reality of today's student. This represents an opportunity to lower costs, eliminate the hassle of lab setup and support and improve student access and portability.
