Managing your virtual Lab

After logging in, you’ll find yourself on the Dashboard of your Clover platform.


To directly access to your virtual lab manager, you can either click the “My Lab” link on the >Hands-on Labs menu or click on the button “Go to my Lab” in the top left corner of the dashboard. Your Virtual lab manger appears as shown in the following figure:

Teacher dashboard

Using the dashboard, you can start, stop, reboot and remotely access your desktop via a web browser. You can also use various tools for collaborative learning including  desktop and file sharing, virtual classroom and session recording.

We will go through the items composing your Dashboard so that you can get familiar with them.

Start your Lab

First, click on the Start button ( ) to launch your desktop. There may be a delay when you launch your virtual desktop. This may take a couple of minutes.

Access your Lab

Once your desktop is created, three buttons will appear: Stop (to shut off your desktop), Restart (to reboot your desktop) and Display (to access your desktop). Click on the Display button, your desktop will be opened in a new tab of your browser.

Display vlab

Once you open a connection to your Desktop (using the Display button in your dashboard), will see a real-time view of the display using the remote desktop access tool Guacamole.
