A day in the life
Every day is a new adventure! You are assigned to work on a specific course or set of courses. The technology you’ll work with will vary based on the course subject matter. Labs often need to have a few resources created before students can begin a lab. You will create templates and scripts to automate the deployment of these resources. You will document the steps required to complete the lab, including explanations. As you build labs for a course, you will collaborate with Technical Architects, Instructional Designers, and Curriculum Developers to ensure the instructional content and the labs are aligned.
