We are pleased to add the Esri Hands-on Learning Lab to our program

2015 Esri Education Services Hands-on Learning Lab

The HOLL will be open on the first day of the conference, Sept. 23, from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, and consists of a group of laptops with headphones where students can work through lessons at their own pace. A lesson consists of a recorded presentation followed by a hands-on exercise. Each lesson typically takes about 45 minutes to one hour to complete and students can generally come and go as they please. Ed Services instructors are on hand to assist with questions and to discuss Esri products, other training opportunities and Esri Technical Certification.
