Re: [PLUG] ideas for class material

my question is exactly what you gave...input.  thank you.  To clarify, if any of you had the opportunity to have input for a class syllabus, what would you include. 

We all learn differently, some by doing, some by reading and writing, some by doing both.

Hi All,

I am currently in a Computer Technology program and have an upcoming
Linux III class. The professor is open to ideas for curriculum. As of
it is project based, but apparently the projects are mainly writing
papers. For Linux II, which I just finished, we had to right a paper as
well. Writing papers is fine, well not really, but I am not taking Linux
III to write papers. Because of this I want to take the opportunity to
offer up some ideas.

I want to do stuff, not write about it, excluding any documentation of
course. I was thinking of the following ideas

- fix broken stuff
- break working stuff
- ssh stuff
- scripts
- hacking
- build an arch or BSD system
- build up workstations and / or server

thanks guys,


Maybe it's just me but.... what is your question exactly ?

P.S.: writing papers is a great way to learn linux. Try to write a paper on the processus schedulers, in linux 3.0 or even in 2.4 if you want something more simple, and I guarantee you'll learn more than if you spend 3 weeks installing sendmail.
