As @steevej-1495 mentioned, you can very easily setup a virtual machine on your system and install
MongoDB on it to practice the concepts that you have leant in this course.
Earlier, users were required to setup a virtual environment on their machine in order to be able to take this course. But it was a time consuming and tedious process. Many users used to run into a lot of issues so we decided to use an In-browser IDE environment in our courses.
As a quick fix, you could also reuse the
IDE space provided in this lab (after you have successfully completed this lab) : Chapter 1: The Mongod Lab: Launching Mongod.
Thanks for bringing this up. I will talk to the team about it and I will ensure we make the necessary changes in our course to facilitate more hands-on experience.
Feel free to reach out to us if you have any other feedback / questions.
