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 for various roles. Currently, these community members have volunteered:

Classroom etiquette

The purpose of the classroom is to provide instruction on a specific topic. As such, it is beneficial for classroom sessions to adhere to a certain standard. Please try to adhere to the following during sessions:

  • Keep in mind that classroom sessions may be logged
  • Adhere to teacher instructions regarding questions and input
  • Avoid unnecessary actions, nick changes and away messages
  • Avoid off-topic conversation

The point is to help maintain a classroom environment that promotes learning while avoiding extraneous content.

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.
  • All teacher notes and class resources should be licensed as "CC 4.0 unported international license"

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

Suggest a class

If there is something you'd like to see during Fedora-Classroom sessions, let us know below, or mail your suggestions to the mailing list. If you are working actually on a draft to give a class, share with us and reach potential contributors to help you!
