New LabSim A+ Practical Application: Responses from Instructors

The new LabSim A+ Essentials and A+ Practical Application courses have been evaluated by many schools, colleges, and career centers who want to determine the courses' quality and potential for success in their classrooms. The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, and many organizations have expressed their excitement about how well the course is serving their students. Professor William Schlick of Schoolcraft College said the new A+ is “as close a feel as possible to actually being in the room with the physical equipment, getting the hands-on experience.” Instructor Martin Cordero of Hopkinsville Community College said, “The graphics are so clear that you can distinguish and interact with the smallest details and gain a level of familiarity with computer components that you would normally only get from hands-on training.”

Other instructors evaluating LabSim A+ Practical Application have told us they are:
  • Excited to have a single tool for teaching the computer maintenance course, rather than many separate materials
  • Hoping the preparation from LabSim A+ will encourage students to take the certification exam
  • Already using LabSim in some classes, wanting to use it in more
