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 in to 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. Within this new tab, click "Start Lab" and wait for the connection details to be displayed on the left. For each lab, you will have a timer so you can see here with the 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. I'm going to grab the username here and paste that in. This is going to be different for each lab. 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. We 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 and services. 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. I'm just waiting for the terms of services, agree, and then continue. Up here, you can see the current project ID that I'm using. It's a good thing to double-check that this project ID actually matches what you have in Qwiklabs. 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 e-mail. This is the account that Qwiklabs created for me. 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. I'm going to go complete this 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 "OK." I can now give this some feedback. Once I click "End Lab" the Qwiklabs provided project and any resources within that project will be deleted. I can now close the Qwiklabs lab page. Here I'm on the lab page. If I can scroll up, you'll see that I have successfully completed the lab. If I go to the grades section of the course, you'll also see that I have a full 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 into the Cloud Console. Good luck with the labs and enjoy the rest of this course.
