Come Learn About the New NDG Linux Essentials Course

Dear Instructors,

A new course is available for you to teach:  NDG Linux Essentials, developed by one of our partners.
You and your instructor colleagues (NetAcad affiliation not required) are invited to attend a brief webinar on the benefits of teaching this new course, both for you and for your students. Even if you have already selected other Linux content for this Fall, here is an opportunity to make it more fun.

DATE:  Thursday, September 11 at 1:00 PT (4:00 ET)

Why Should I Attend this Webinar?
  • ICT disciplines are finding value in Linux expertise, and it is a great complement to networking
  • Linux content can be challenging to teach and learn
  • Hear from instructors and students who found great success in the small market trial of the course
Feel free to forward this invite and registration link to your community of instructors beyond NetAcad. Participants can earn 1 Continuing Ed Unit (CEU).

What Is Special About the New Linux Course?
1.     The course outline is provided, and aligns with the LPI.ORG Linux Essentials Certificate.
2.     The NetSpace learning environment has lessons, quizzes and assessments for high school and college.
3.     Students use virtual machines, which reduces tech support required.
4.     Material is aligned chapter by chapter with national education standards (STEM et al).
5.     Your students will add marketable job skills to their resume.
