    Beginners Team Education Focus Group - Call for Instructors

    Hello Tutorial and Tip Makers

    The Beginners Team Education Focus Group is looking for 'instructors' to offer 'courses' to Ubuntu users. These courses could be forum or wiki based only, irc only or use a combination of the two formats. (I am considering developing some content that could be delivered by local Ubuntu LoCo teams as well). Obviously many of the threads here are evidence of the great knowledge you all possess. I would love to invite everyone who has gotten a thread approved here to schedule question and answer sessions for people looking for help on the topics you have covered.

    Hypothetical topics:

    • How to install wirless drivers via a wrapper
    • How to install a proprietary video driver
    • How to configure UFW
    • How to add additional repositories

    The goal would be to give more information about the general process than is typically found in forum posts.

    Please feel free to ask questions in this thread or contact me directly.

    More information:

    maybe if us beginners could request tutorial and howto's and then people who had the know-how could select the tutorials that they could do best.

    that way tutorials are produced which beginners actually needed.

    I must admit I'm a newbie and I need to explore more to fully understand Ubuntu and having this tutorial will make us grow.

    I mean I think it would be interesting if we had weekly "classes" on IRC, and then past the log to this forum. We could rotate topics and instructors. I don't but I am very interested in this.

    I'd be happy to do a class on adding repositories. Could also talk about 3rd party ppa's and signing them.

    Thumbs down Re: Beginners Team Education Focus Group - Call for Instructors

    Well, I'm an absolute beginner and just figured out howto install ubuntu 9.04 with two NICS, webmin, ... as a gateway/dhcp server with LAMP and JAVA on a local network.

    Maybe some people might want such a setup at home too? Let me know if you need some tutorial about that...

    Only one remark: I know about the security issues running an application server that's also a gateway and dhcp: if someone can help me out about configuring and monitoring all ports in gnome or text, let me know

    I would be more than willing to assist, although as a semi-noobie myself I should probably stick to just supporting those more knowledgeable than me, so if anyone needs some graphs, ppts, or any other helpful resources to help in teaching new-comers I would be more than happy to assist. I know it sounds corny to offer "graphs, ppts, etc." but whatever it takes to help people new to Ubuntu feel more comfortable I am all for, and if that means supporting the "teaching staff", I just want to offer my services. Consider me a potential TA )Teachers Assistant
