Accessing Your Lab

If you are new to Element K or have questions about the iLabs, please read the ElementKiLab Tutorial to learn more about requirements, launching, scheduling, and sharing your labs.

Using your student credentials, log in to Element K (log-in screen shown below).

After logging in to Element K, click Development Paths to see all courses you have access to; NETW 208 will be listed on this page.

Click on the NETW 208 course link (in red) to see the weekly labs.

Starting Your Lab

To go to your lab, click on the appropriate weekly lab URL.

There are two ways to start a lab activity.

Schedule it (recommended)

Because you have access to live equipment, there is only a defined number of students who can use any one lab at any given time. It is recommended to schedule your labs to make sure the lab is available to you at your convenience. If you try to log in to a lab and your access is denied, the system will let you schedule the lab at a later date.

Start it right away

Note: If all lab resources are being used when you try to start your lab, then you will be given an opportunity to schedule the lab at a later time.
