Keep on Learning
Are you feeling left out that you are back to work and NOT back to school like so many others? Take one of the the Self-Paced Virtual Classes (SPVC) trials for free and you'll be "back in school" too!
What is SPVC?
Self-Paced Virtual Classes (SPVC) are recorded lectures, demonstrations and exercises that you can access on-demand. Meaning... you can take the class in the middle of the night if you like, wearing whatever you choose to wear, and wherever you choose to be (as long as you have high speed internet access! The classes are narrated by IBM classroom instructors.
What is the benefit of this type of class?
* Big savings with no travel costs and lower tuition
* Delivers same content, exercises and hands-on labs as classroom courses
* Instructors are included “virtually” through recorded lecture, demonstrations and exercises
* Conduct hands-on labs with real IBM software – not simulations
* Access to course Forums with expert feedback from instructors and fellow students
* Flexibility to train when and where you want
What is offered in the Free Trial?
The trial courses include a portion of a real course that, depending on the course, includes instructor lecture, demonstrations, and exercises.
The trial courses do not include access to the hands-on lab environments. However, a copy of the lab exercise books are included on the materials tab.
How do I get started?

After enrolling,you receive your access and login information by email. At your convenience, anytime within the next 30 days, log in and begin your course.

Kate’s blog lists all the Sunday courses that are offered this year at the IBM Information on Demand Conference, but I want to go into more detail for a few of these sessions.
Today I’ll mention this class:
IBM solidDB Universal Cache Fundamentals (E5903) with Marko Milek and John Seery
First of all, this and the other pre-conference classes take place only on Sunday October 24 from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. This is a special one-day offering being presented on Sunday, October 24,2010 in conjunction with the IBM Information on Demand 2010 Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. Registration for the IOD Conference is NOT required to attend this Sunday class.
This training course is designed to introduce you to the relational in-memory database technology and high-speed advanced replication components which comprise the solidDB Universal Cache. This is the industry's first relational, in-memory caching technology that accelerates industry leading databases such as DB2, Informix, Oracle, SQL Server, and Sybase. Specific focus through in-depth lecture, examples, and use cases, will be put on the following topics: in-memory architecture, administration, installation and configuration, caching, performance, high availability, monitoring, diagnostics, and troubleshooting.
This training is designed to introduce you to the concepts a test candidate must know in order to take and pass the IBM solidDB and IBM solidDB Universal Cache certification exam (Exam 5550). The material for this course is aligned with the 5550 exam objectives.
Following aspects of the solidDB product family are addressed in the course:
This is an interesting concept! Education classes can be rather expensive and if the course doesn’t fit your needs, the price is even higher. Now you can try a class for free to see if it gets into the depth that you need or at the pace that you need.
Experience the benefits of instructor-led online (ILO) and self-paced training with our no-charge class samples and trials. These popular no-travel training formats offer the same rich content and labs as our classroom courses. Check them out:
Yesterday I spent the afternoon at the IBM IOD Virtual Conference and virtually attended several sessions. I like the fact that I can sit at my desk with my computer and headphones and take in the content from amazing speakers. If you haven’t tried it yet, try one of these classes and see how useful they are. You may prefer this type of education to any other once you give it a try.
