Introducing Conductor

Introducing Conductor

D2iQ’s Conductor is a distributed learning platform that enables you to train your team using interactive cloud-native content - using a mix of traditional documentation, video training, self-guided labs, quizzes and tests - all served in a web-based single-page integrated learning environment.

Conductor features and benefits

This is the first release of Conductor’s self-hosted offering, featuring the following capabilities:

  • Easy on-prem/cloud installation: Operators can now install Conductor on their own Kubernetes cluster using only a helm chart and a few common addons Setup for more information.

  • File Editor: Learners can view, edit, and save files in their training environment workspaces from the easy-to-use File Editor GUI tab.

  • Sign-up Link Tool: Administrators can now invite any number of learners to use Conductor by generating and then sharing a disposable sign-up link from the Admin Portal page.
