Hello and welcome. I'm Philipp Maier, a course developer with Google Cloud, and this is a brief tutorial on using Qwiklabs in this course. I'm about to show you the interactive hands-on labs platform called Qwiklabs, which is part of Google Cloud. Qwiklabs allows you to get practical hands-on experience with Google Cloud, and proficiency with Google account credentials, so that you can access the Cloud Console at no cost. The first step is to log into Coursera in an incognito window. Depending on your browser, it might also be called private browsing or in-private browsing. Logging into Coursera from a private window ensures that you don't accidentally use your own Google account while accessing the Cloud Console. We don't want you to get any unexpected bills at the end of the month. Check out the links in the download section of this video for different browser support articles. Once logged into Coursera using an incognito window, return to your course and go to the lab activity page. If prompted, you want to accept the honor code and enter your name. Then click open tool to open that lab in a new tab, and within this new tab, click start lab and wait for the connection details to be displayed on the left. So for each lab, you will have a timer. So you can see here with d remaining access time. Your lab will automatically end when the timer runs out. Now, you want to click open Google console, and then sign in with the username and password provided in this connections detail page. So I'm going to grab the username here and paste that in, and this is going to be different for each lab, and I'll also grab the password, and paste that in there as well. Now Qwiklabs creates a new account for you each time you launch a lab therefore, you need to click through the initial account setup Windows. Somebody have a new account here, so I'm going to accept. Asking for a backup, I don't need that I'm just going to confirm. Once I am in the cloud console, I'm also going to have to accept the terms of services. So let's just wait for that to load up, and then once I'm in that project also or in the account, I can verify that I'm using the right project and I'll show you how to do that. So I'm just waiting for the terms of services, agree, and then continue. So up here, you can see the current project ID that I'm using, and it's a good thing to double-check that this project ID actually matches what you have in Qwiklabs, and we can see that here, that this is the same Project ID. In some labs, you actually have multiple project IDs and maybe even multiple users if you're trying to do specific sharing between users or adding, removing permissions, and so on. Now I can also see that my username in here, is not my actual email, this is the account that Qwiklabs created for me. So it's important to make sure that these match again, the credentials that are in here so that you're not using your own account. Now, some labs track your work within the Qwiklabs provided Google Cloud project. If this is enabled, you will see a score in the top right corner of the Qwiklabs window, as you can see here. Now your score increases as objectives are met, and you can click on the score to view the individual steps to be scored as you can see here right now. So I'm going to go complete these and then come back. Now that I have completed the lab, I can see my score has been updated, and I'm ready to click end lab, and then confirm with okay. I can now give this some feedback and once I click end lab, the Qwiklabs provided project and any resources within that project will be deleted. So I can now close the Qwiklabs lab page. So here I'm on the lab page and if I can scroll up, you'll see that I have successfully completed the lab, and if I go to the grades section of the course, you'll also see that I have a four score for this lab. That's it for this tutorial. Remember to launch Coursera in an incognito window and use the Qwiklabs provided credentials to sign in to the cloud console. Good luck with the labs, and enjoy the rest of this course.
