Question Learn Linux Online

Is there some online linux learning school(course) that I (and also a friend of mine that wants to learn linux) can take for free?
Sort of like reading lots of material online, doing experiments at home, tests, correspondence?
That would be interesting and would but a bit more pressure on us to expand our OH-SO-Little knowledge.
Any links or suggestions will be appreciated.

there are lots of resources out there, google for a few will help.. and dare i say try and download some e-books from er,,, somewhere . most of them have excercises for you to complete and work you in to the operating system bit by bit.. youre not going to get a tutor for free, but if you can become your own tutor with some good books and the such you will go a long way

There are qualifications you can obtain in Linux, and these don't necessarilay need specialist training, however a decent course will help

don't know of any courses, but there are mountains of free docs online ready to be read. start with and Rute's guide, check out the docs at, mandrake, etc. and keep reading threads here at LQ of course.

You could try the resources here or here. Seem to me that the University of Illinois also has an on-line thing for Linux.

Hi friends,

Welcome friends in the world of linux. It is certainly exciting and interesting.
First choose distributor about which u want to start it, i recommend red hat 9 is better. Its installation is very much easy and user friendly.

Then use google and newbie for getting help.

Thanks for all the replies. It was not really for me, but people I want to each linux to that are "linux illitarate". I use google and LQ mostly and distrowatch of course and a lot of others as well. I'm pretty sur that there are more sites for linux than for winbloze. Just my two cents.

IBM has several free web courses you can take. You just need to register.
