Well you can’t beat the price, it is free. Over at open Suse Linux rants, Scott Morris is offering a free Linux course that only requires an email address to take advantage of. The course is described on his Web site as:

Because let’s face it… If you are like me, you enjoy sharing Linux with people. However, teaching people how to run Linux can feel time-consuming. That said, what if you had a resource that you could point them to and just say, “Look, this will teach you everything you need to know to get started using Linux?” Wouldn’t that be great? That is part of the design of this course as well.

Here is a brief list of what the course covers:

  • What is Linux, exactly?
  • Are you sure Linux isn’t that hard to use? I heard that it was!
  • Why do people like to use Linux so much?
  • Is Linux really a serious operating system? Who is actually using it?
  • I’ve heard several things about Linux. Which are fact and which are fiction?
  • What is the easiest way to transition over to using Linux?
  • Is there a program like Internet Explorer? Outlook? Photoshop?
  • How do I get Linux? How do I then install it?

Scott also states that the course is 36 pages of ebook learning and further states it is designed for those from seven years of age to 98 and above. 🙂 This seems like a great opportunity to take advantage of an exceptional free offer and hopefully will assist those who are new to the Linux platform.

Scott’s free offering is located here. Look to the left navigation bar. Enjoy.
