Education in general and cybersecurity education in particular can be made more attractive by adding hands-on experience to classrooms. This requires new technology, such as virtualisation, to be developed fully geared towards the needs of educational purposes. Over the years, several techniques have been developed by the authors. In this paper, the authors first give a full account of their earlier work on a distributed virtual computer lab for cybersecurity education. Then, this virtual lab is extended with educational enhancements, such as an intelligent tutoring system, which resulted in a prototype for a virtual classroom for cybersecurity education.
