Project Ares Website Features
This new website features updated
- Easier navigation
- Comprehensive Cyber Learning Catalog
We've also made it easier to filter your Project Ares Scenario (opens new window) search with NICE Framework competencies and scenario types to more efficiently help you identify the best cybersecurity labs that will align with your teaching and training goals. 🙌🏼
At projectares.academy, You will Learn:
How Project Ares improves cyber education with a new and improved Student Progress Dashboard 📈
Allowing instructors to track the students’ progress; enabling the instructors to quickly see which students need extra help.
How gamified learning engages students with interactive elements like 🎮
- Ranking systems (leaderboards)
- Rewards (badges and experience points)
These components allow students to apply what they know to simulated environments, creating a natural “flow” that keeps them engaged and focused.
How Project Ares scenarios map to the NICE Framework 🙌🏼
Instructors can align curriculum and labs to work-role-specific teaching to better prepare students to enter the workforce with competency and confidence.
Some of the new Project Ares exercises are organized into assessment paths across 5 work roles: Cyber Defense Analyst, Cyber Defense Infrastructure Specialist, Threat/Warning Analyst, System Security Analyst, and Team Lead.
