Feeling a bit rusty with your linux skills? Are you a new Ubuntu linux user and feel overwelmed with packaging managers, gpg keys, and IRC lingo? Well, the solution is right around the corner. The folks at New User Network have launched the Ubuntu Classroom, a project aimed at delivering good, live didatic material to all users, new and “seasoned.”

Some classes have already been scheduled for the month of August and there are some open slots for instructors. Though I can assume all classes will be administered in english, I’m sure they wouldn’t oppose the idea of having some slots for classes in other languages. So, if you feel like helping out and need more information (and to view an up to date schedule), check out their page.
