Introduction

The Fedora Classroom is a project to teach interested users of Fedora how to better use, understand and manage their Distribution. Currently, All classes are held on IRC in the #fedora-classroom on irc.freenode.net. If you are not familiar with IRC, see the Fedora IRC HowTo .

If there is a session you would like to see, please suggest it and we'll do our best to accommodate the request.

Help wanted

If you would like to help out the Fedora Classroom effort, we are currently looking for assistance in several areas. Please see the Classroom Help Wanted Page.

Teaching a class

If you would like to teach a class on any Fedora related topic, please mail an introduction of yourself and outline of your proposed class to the classroom mailing list. Some things to keep in mind:

  • We recommend sessions be approximately 90 minutes This allows for an hour long session and enough time for questions and answers.
  • Make sure you know your subject and know where to point students who wish more detailed information.
  • Note at the beginning of your class if you would like students to ask questions as you go, or would prefer them to wait until the end.
  • Remember that typing is slower than talking in front of a class or speaking on a phone call, so keep in mind you will not cover as much on IRC.

(Note: Check out The World Clock Meeting Planner for time zone syncing.)
