Linux Workshop
Hi all. I want to arrange a Linux workshop in my university in order to introduce Linux to the newbies. Its duration would be one week. I want your suggestions and ideas about the contents of this workshop. I myself am going to conduct the workshop. Thanks

Does your university have a Linux User Group (LUG)?

n3tw0rk 05-19-2004 01:48 PM

no there is no LUG. Infact very few people use Linux. Maybe 5 or 6.

just a few off the top of my head

1) history: keep this one short
2) Linux vs Windows: advantages AND disadvantages
3) look, feel & function of shell / command line
4) the filesystem, learning commands
5) basic administration: logging in, adding / deleting users, editing text files
6) building packages

are these computer newbies or just Linux newbies?

Moved: This thread is more suitable in LUG and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

You can find a nice HOWTO here:
A LUG is not the only way to do what you want, but it may be a good start.

Can a LUG help me?
I am looking for a LUG. IRC sucks because, it is setup for new users. The same questions keep getting asked every day. Where can a Advanced user go to learn new stuff. My town has no LUG. Buying book after book gets costly. I bought five books at 25+ $ this year. Can anti_microsoft's idea for a word LUG work? If the idea did work would it help users like me? anti_microsoft's idea is here
