Free Ubuntu Training Courseware

In the latest Ubuntu weekly newsletter the Ubuntu folks announced the 
release of the Ubuntu 7.10 Desktop Course. The modular course should 
take two days to complete all 10 of the lessons offered, but it is 
possible to cover topics and lessons independently of each other, 
learning whatever is of interest. 

Coming in two versions, both downloadable as PDFs, there is a student 
guide and an instructor guide. The instructor guide comes with 
instructor notes and answers to the exercise questions together while 
the student guide has no instructor notes and the answers are provided 

The ten sections of the course include: introducing Ubuntu; exploring 
the Ubuntu desktop; using the Internet; using OpenOffice applications; 
Ubuntu and games; customising the desktop and applications; making the 
most of images and photos; playing music and videos; ubuntu help and 
support; and partitioning and booting. 

Announcing the release of the course, Billy Cina, Canonical training 
programmes manager, wrote "This is just the beginning of the project 
which we hope will live and evolve with each new Ubuntu release. Yours 
to develop, enhance and branch off to your heart's content!" 

The course falls under a Creative Commons licence and people are 
welcome to modify and create additional content. For more details go
