Are there other options to run the DS201 VM on a M1 Mac?

I am trying to work through the DS201 exercises on my M1-based Mac. Reviewing the requirements for DS201 VM in "DS201 Exercise Environment Guide.pdf", I found that the easy method to get started using the Oracle VirtualBox option is not possible as that software is not compatible with an M1 mac. Are there any other options to get a VM running or an updated guide to help get up and running through the exercises on an M1? If not, I'll try to go through "Your Own Computer" section and see if that works.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, no. The courses are a little bit dated and our Learning team are in the process of revamping them but they won't happen anytime soon so you'll need to run them on another machine. Cheers!
