Hi,

7 Ways To Learn Linux In A Structured Manner

Updated July 07, 2016.
If you are looking to learn Linux in a more structured way then you will need to find dedicated training courses.
The best way to learn any subject is with a mixture of materials including written documentation, videos and perhaps some classroom training.
This list highlights some of the options available for you when it comes to learning Linux.
Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

For me it was O'Reilly to the rescue back circa 2000. Running Linux quickly grew dated but Linux in a NutShell (I've owned 3 versions) was and is one of the best purchases I've ever made.

Personally, the thought of trying to learn something from videos horrifies me! As Dr Johnson said, "I cannot see that lectures can do as much good as reading the books from which the lectures are taken."

Actually, I'm not sure about learning from a course, unless you are proceeding to a qualification. Just as the best software is written by people who need it for themselves, so one learns computing best when one has a problem to solve or an interesting question. A good book and willingness to experiment are the best teachers.

Only opinions could subtract from education...

(VLC for eg can be speed up) Videos can be same as (or add to) books plus work best with some learning styles. The more the merrier.

A mix of video with enhancement by print material will aid one to understand. Down fall is that the individual is not afforded the feedback by either author when one does have difficulty with a presentation. Either via the video or print, it is nice to have a classroom setting but not everyone can afford the time or expense.

Education is just the means to advance one's class or understanding that will lead to a specific goal to improve their abilities that in turn will advance their income or gain within the career field.
