Importance of Labs in Linux Training

,----[ Quote ]
| Having many labs, some of our manuals have 60 labs, 
| are essential for learning in small segments. Labs 
| should provide clear directions on how to accomplish 
| precise goals. The labs need to lead the student on a 
| road that they clearly understand leads to success. 
| Having created labs to be used in a training 
| situation over 11 years now, one thing I learned was 
| that the labs need to be short, something that can be 
| accomplished in 15-20 minutes. That length of time 
| provides a challenge and offers reward based on one 
| goal not multiple goals. One thing that I have seen 
| with the 45 minute labs is that some students 
| struggle early in the lab and bail out by not 
| finishing the lab. Face it, learning Linux, 
| especially from the command line is a real challenge 
| for todayâs graphically orientated users.


The best place for Linux

| These needs could be financial, philosophical, 
| technological or even educational (lets just call 
| them al :). For financial I don't just mean 
| struggling businesses or people. Countries and 
| governments also have a financial need. This was one 
| of the reasons behind the OLPC project. Poor and 
| third world countries can greatly benefit from Linux 
| to help give them a leg up into the modern world. 



New lab for open-source developers

| Technopreneurs working with open-source technology can now develop their 
| applications further, with the opening of the Basis Bay-MSC Malaysia Open 
| Source laboratory here.   

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
