26 March 2020 release notes: What's New in VMware Learning Platform
PDF Lab Manuals VMware Learning Platform now supports the PDF document format for student lab manuals. This feature enables content creators to use external authoring tools to develop lab manuals for use in VMware Learning Platform. In addition, it provides customers who have preexisting content an additional import option. Go to Lab Management > Lab Resources > Create Lab Resource.
Detailed Billing The new billing dashboard provides granular usage metering of on-demand service usage. This dashboard enables Tenant Administrators to optimize usage of the service to help control cost. The new billing dashboard is available in the Tenant Management module > Billing.
Lab Replication With replicas, a Tenant Administrator can easily and reliably replicate vApp Lab Templates within the same region or to other geographical regions throughout the cloud. This feature helps enable several key use cases including distributing templates for high availability, remote backups, and improving performance for students by providing labs in-region.
Create User during Entitlement Creation This functionality introduces the ability to create a user during the entitlement creation process, without the need for the user to register for or create an account in VMware Learning Platform. This feature can be useful in one-time lab use situations, or to provide a quick hands-on demo without having the user go through the standard registration process.
Class Self-Registration Instructors now have the capability to enable a class for student self-registration. This feature is advantageous in scenarios where an instructor may not have the student roster well in advance of a scheduled class. During class creation the instructor simply configures the number of seats the class is intended to support, and then provides their students with a self-registration URL. No account creation is required beforehand.
Remember to keep a lookout for the new Admin User Interface if you aren’t already using it, as the old UI will be deprecated within the next few weeks!
