This section covers the various interactions & processes you can have as an instructor with Mirantis courseware.
Accessing & Downloading Mirantis Exercises
Ensure that you have shared your Github User ID with firstname.lastname@example.org this will allow our administrators to grant you permissions & access to our Github Repository
Once your account has been granted access you will be able to head directly to our release repository:
Notice: In virtually all situations, you should be choosing the latest release possible, this will always be at the top of the page, and will be marked with:
Pre Workshop Content Setup
Once you have downloaded one of our releases, you will have everything required to setup our content for a workshop. All of our slides and exercises are distributed as containerized websites that you are able to deploy ahead of your planned workshops.
The exercise PDFs can be downloaded directly from the corresponding exercise websites, similarly images for these containerized websites are attached to the release as binaries.
We include a quickstart guide, along with manual steps within each release to assist you with setting up our content after downloading.
Notice: Please head directly to https://github.com/docker-training/cnc-presentations/releases and follow the guides from there as the steps & links within the steps may vary from release to release.
Post Workshop Teardown
Upon workshop completion it is extremely critical that you pull these websites down as soon as possible. All of the content is the copyright of Mirantis, Inc, and is not to be distributed, posted or shared anywhere outside of planned & scheduled workshops.
You are able to share PDF copies of the exercises & content with your students, however under no circumstances should you share the website images themselves.
Accessing & Using Mirantis Labs via Strigo
All Mirantis lab environments are strictly provisioned through Strigo. Strigo utilizes Amazon EC2 instances which are accessible to your students through a simple browser interface. If you haven’t already done so please contact email@example.com and we will ensure that an account is created.
Notice: The usage of Strigo environments for all Mirantis workshops is absolutely mandatory and no exceptions will be made.
We highly recommend if you do not have any experience using Strigo that you first take sometime to review the basic operational instruction guide that is available here: https://github.com/docker-training/suggested-solutions/blob/master/primers/strigo-intro.md
Additionally, it maybe a good idea to have one of your team administrators create a Strigo test session. This way you can familiarize yourself with all of the options & tools within the system before teaching a live workshop. If you ever have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scheduling Workshops in Strigo
As an instructor, typically you will not be scheduling the workshops yourself. The team administrator who is responsible for scheduling, organizing & managing your teams workshops will create & share the following with you:
Strigo Environment URL
Strigo Environment Access Codes
These need to be distributed to the students before the beginning of your workshop, this will need to be either done by you or the administrative team handling scheduling.
