Free “Intro to Linux” Course Now Available

by @ 7:03 am. Filed under freebies, General Linux, General SUSE, SUSE Blog News

Finally! Tonight, I was able to wrap up the last class of my online course.

This online course is done via email. It is completely free. People register for the class, and receive an ebook via email every few days containing the next class of the course. Its goal is to be the most basic introduction to Linux possible. So basic that anyone who could possibly be interested in learning Linux can do it through this course. Your 7-year-old daughter or your 98-year-old uncle. Your brother who has never even seen a computer before (ok, that one may be a bit of a stretch). Anyone and everyone should have a basic understanding of Linux once they have completed the course.

You see, this gives a platform of understanding that we can then build upon with other types of articles and such. Besides that, it’s about 36 pages of free e-book content. How could that possibly be bad? 🙂

Because let’s face it… If you are like me, you enjoy sharing Linux with people. However, teaching people how to run Linux can feel time-consuming. That said, what if you had a resource that you could point them to and just say, “Look, this will teach you everything you need to know to get started using Linux.”? Wouldn’t that be great? That is part of the design of this course as well.

Here is a brief list of what the course covers:

If you are interested in such a course, or know someone who is, the sign-up form is in the left nav on my blog page. It’s totally free, and has some great info in it.

I also wanted to announce that this blog has now had over 1 Million page views in the last year. That seriously blows me away.
