In my history of teaching I have found that most students learn more from hands-on. The Live Virtual Machine Labs teach hands-on skills using powerful machines that can be used in any browser or computer. The virtual labs offer the student more opportunity to demonstrate the learned concept and ask questions if necessary. This visual representation only helps to cement the core concepts.
