Good Morning Belinda,
Does your company offer discount/bulk rates for schools? I have 10 inner
city students that have been selected for a project where we receive pentium
3 pc's (450's to 900's) and refurbish with Ubuntu and distribute to
community based organizations. These students have little to no experience
besides the basic end users but have been chosen with their dedication and
drive to learn. I kept the pilot program at 10 students as its a manageable
number and we have chosen Ubuntu as the OS. But beyond the super basics I
would like a solid lesson curriculum to teach a basic linux/ubuntu. Do you
have something basic/introduction course? This project is not geared
towards getting them certified just introduced and familiar with the
software. I am hoping this will introduce them into a lucrative carer
(better then Mc Donalds :)
Lt. Don E. Davie
