The Fedora Classroom is a project to help people spread knowledge to others. We host a plethora of sessions on different subjects.
We are moving away from a live streaming to a recording based deliverly model. This helps us get the sessions to more people, and it helps us focus on the quality of the material instead of the technology involved.
Therefore, we are no longer bound by release cycle based calendar.
Please refer to https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/ScreenCasting for information on tools that can be used to record sessions.
If you would like to help out the Fedora Classroom effort, we are currently looking for assistance in several areas.
The purpose of the classroom is to provide instruction on a specific topic. As such, it is beneficial for classroom sessions to adhere to a certain standard. Please try to adhere to the following during sessions:
Keep in mind that classroom sessions may be logged
Adhere to teacher instructions regarding questions and input
Avoid unnecessary actions, nick changes and away messages
Avoid off-topic conversation
The point is to help maintain a classroom environment that promotes learning while avoiding extraneous content.
If you would like to teach a class on any Fedora related topic, please mail an introduction of yourself and outline of your proposed class to the classroom mailing list. Some things to keep in mind:
We recommend sessions be approximately 90 minutes This allows for an hour long session and enough time for questions and answers.
Make sure you know your subject and know where to point students who wish more detailed information.
Note at the beginning of your class if you would like students to ask questions as you go, or would prefer them to wait until the end.
Remember that typing is slower than talking in front of a class or speaking on a phone call, so keep in mind you will not cover as much on IRC.
