How Do You Learn Best?


Years of research has shown that people learn differently. Some people learn best by reading about a topic, others from watching videos, and some need to get hands-on and learn as they go. And this holds true whether you're baking a cake or learning a new technology.

Let’s look at online recipes for example: You may be the kind of person who can follow the exact recipe and create a beautiful masterpiece or you may create a beautiful disaster even if you followed the recipe perfectly!

At Nutanix University, we help you avoid those beautiful disasters by offering training in a variety of styles so you can find the class that works best for you—no matter how you learn. 

Today, we want to focus on three of our most popular learning options that let you learn from anywhere: virtual instructor-led classes, online training, and online plus training.


What is Virtual Instructor-Led Training?

Virtual instructor-led training (vILT) gives you the same experience as a standard instructor-led training class, but from the comfort of your own home. Our vILT classes are equipped with hands-on labs and detailed instructions led by Nutanix experts to create an optimal learning environment. vILT provides the opportunity for Q&A, white-boarding, and hands-on labs with courses designed as follows: 30% is dedicated to learning from the instructor and asking questions, and 70% is spent on labs. 


Key Benefits


Access to an Instructor

A live instructor is available to address and explain complicated topics, answer questions, and provide live feedback throughout the class. These instructors have met our standards for excellence and bring their real-world experience to the classroom. vILT is available from our global network of Authorized Training Partners (ATPs) via public schedules, or we can host a private vILT class just for your organization. 


Hands-On Labs

vILT gives you the opportunity to get your hands on the products in a controlled environment and apply what you learned through detailed, interactive hands-on labs.


Opportunity for Q&A

Virtual instructor-led classes not only allow you to interact with the instructor, but also with your fellow classmates. You have the opportunity to ask questions and hear from others with insightful, helpful questions of their own.


What is Online Training?


Our online delivery method is the ultimate in flexibility, offering a fresh and engaging way of teaching you the fundamentals you need to succeed. These classes provide a mix of interactive content so you can learn, watch, and practice all at your own pace. Our online training also includes simulations which let you mimic live environments and scenarios, and provides feedback if you choose the incorrect answer.


Key Benefits


Learn Anytime

The biggest benefit of online training is the flexibility to learn anytime, anywhere. Our extensive library of online training includes short videos, product demos, and certification practice exams on a wide range of topics.


Self-Paced Learning

Online training is designed with short, digestible content so you can learn at your own pace.


Free Training

Our full library of online training courses are completely free. 


What is Online Plus Training?


Online Plus training blends the convenience of online training with skills building in hands-on labs. Currently available for our best-selling Enterprise Cloud Administration course, this option gives you 2 weeks to complete the online coursework, followed by a scheduled day of self-guided labs facilitated by an instructor.


Key Benefits


Learn Anytime

Online Plus gives you the flexibility of online training so you can learn anytime, anywhere, and you’ll cover the same Enterprise Cloud Administration course material.


Hands-On Labs ​

With online plus training, you have the opportunity to get your hands on the products in a controlled environment and apply what you learned through a scheduled day of hands-on labs.


Less Expensive than a Fully Instructor-Led Class

This option is ideal when training budgets are limited, but you would like the benefit of guided hands-on practice.

No matter how you choose to learn, you’ll end the training feeling confident in your ability to use your new skills at work.
