Hands-on learning experiences are a fundamental aspect of Cybersecurity teaching, learning, and assessment. Thus, the biggest challenge was achieving accurate learning outcomes and assessments that reflect the practical elements of the course learning objectives, students' expectations, and time commitment and logistics. Other possible challenges in teaching cybersecurity courses include how many hours do students have access to the laboratory infrastructures and whether they can conveniently have access to their practical learning platforms at their comfort and at any time? Would they be able to practice their learning in a safe environment with all the computer and network access privileges without violating the institution's IT systems policy? Would they be able to scale their work with adequate resources to enable them to demonstrate their learning from anywhere? Virtualization Technology attempt to answer these questions, and its usage has proved very useful for teaching and learning Cybersecurity courses and used in the industries. The presentation focuses on exploring options of using Virtualization Technology for teaching, learning, and assessment to solve the time commitment and logistics challenges and improve students' learning experiences.
