Every good lab experience starts with great guidance. Strigo's lab exercises help you provide your students with the needed guidance through structured, easy-to-access lab instructions. Lab exercises are displayed side-by-side with the lab interface, saving you the hassle of sharing external PDFs or links and reducing context-switching for your students.

This article explains how Strigo's built-in lab exercises work and how to add them to your training materials.

* This feature is currently limited to On-demand training only. Exercises will not show up during live training.

How does it work

Lab exercises are a part of your class template. You add them using a built-in editor in the class template's edit page.

The exercises you add then show up in the student’s workspace, side-by-side with the lab resources you configured, like so:

How to add an exercise to a class template

In your class template page, scroll down to the Lab Exercise section.
Click the Add Exercise button to create a new exercise.

Give your exercise a title and use the built-in editor to fill in the exercise’s content. You can embed hosted images or videos, and also add code examples by styling your text as code.

How to test your exercises

Exercises can currently be viewed inside the on-demand environments. To see your exercises in action, create a new on-demand course and set it's class to the one you added the exercises to. Enroll yourself to the course and then visit the course link.

How to track your students' progress

Strigo tracks your students' progress as they move through the exercises. This information is then made available to you through the UI as well as our API.
To see what exercise each of your students is currently in, visit the on-demand course page and look for the Exercises Progress column in the enrollments table. Alternatively, you can acquire this information through our On-demand course enrollment API.
