The Fedora Classroom is a project to help people spread knowledge to others. We host a plethora of sessions on different subjects.
- Recordings of sessions are made available on the Fedora Youtube channel.
- Follow up questions on the sessions can be asked on Discourse under the classroom sub-category.
- Suggestions for new sessions should be made on our Pagure project.
- Previous classroom sessions can be found here. Please do also look at the archives at the bottom of the page.
We are moving away from a live streaming to a recording based deliverly model. This helps us get the sessions to more people, and it helps us focus on the quality of the material instead of the technology involved.
Therefore, we are no longer bound by release cycle based calendar.
Please refer to ScreenCasting for information on tools that can be used to record sessions.
The last cycle of the live streaming sessions is scheduled here. The Fedora classroom calendar lists upcoming classroom sessions. One can add the iCal feed to their calendar application to be informed of classroom sessions.
Badges for instructors
Community members that instruct sessions earn badges! These are awarded automatically for sessions that are held in . For sessions that are held on other platforms, a ticket must be filed to award the badge manually.

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.)
