Overview

MindTap® Networking for Linux+ Guide to Linux Certification is an online learning solution designed to help students master the skills they need in today’s workforce. Research shows employers need critical thinkers, troubleshooters and creative problem-solvers to stay relevant in our fast paced technology-driven world. MindTap helps you achieve this with assignments and activities that provide hands-on practice, real-life relevance, and certification test prep. Students are guided through assignments that help them master basic knowledge and understanding before moving on to more challenging problems. All MindTap activities and assignments are tied to the Linux+ Powered by LPI certification exam objectives from CompTIA. The hands-on labs provide real-life application and practice. The IQ certification test prep engine allows students to quiz themselves on specific exam domains, and the pre- and post- course assessments are mock exams that measure exactly how much they have learned. Readings and “whiteboard shorts” support the lecture, while “In The News” assignments encourage students to stay current. MindTap is designed around learning objectives and provides the analytics and reporting to easily see where the class stands in terms of progress, engagement, and completion rates. Use the content and learning path as-is or pick and choose how our materials will wrap around yours. You control what the students see and when they see it.
