Re wrote it....

What is ubuntu-classroom?

A place for users to learn how to give back to the community. We want to
be able to show the millions of users of Ubuntu, how they, personally,
can make Ubuntu better. Our goal is to help show users how easy it is to
contribute to Ubuntu. We want to follow up with users to make sure they
continue to contribute.

How can you help? Join the team! We have scheduled meetings every Sunday
at 12UTC 2pm (EST) in gobby (gobby.ubuntu.com) We are looking for
presenters, we may approach you asking for help. Blog about the upcoming
presentations. Invite users to check out a presentation. Sit in on an
interesting presentation yourself. We need users to be available to help
with questions on IRC. We basically need help with everything as we are
just getting started (again).
