Including admin general topics, we will also cover how to install a Linux webserver and PHP application using Moodle as the example application.
Linux newbies. You don't have to be "techie" but should be willing to learn.

I have about 10 seats available. It will be first come first serve. The class will start on Monday the 30th of January, 2006.
Course materials will include Essential System Administration 3rd Edition published by
O'Reilly and various online materials.
This course is designed as in Introduction to Linux(general Unix applicability)
Administration. Both the formal Unix theory of operation and practical day to day operations will be covered. The course will utilize VM Player to allow participants to access the Linux environment without a dedicated Linux computer.
Draft List of Objectives
Intro to the Unix Way: Ch 1-3
Managing Users and Groups.
Managing Network Services
Automating Administrative Tasks (Scripting)
Managing System Resources
Building Custom Kernel for Performance (if time allows)
Deploying LAMP Web Applications
(Linux Apache Mysql PHP) I will probably use Moodle as the test case of a LAMP application setup and possible student projects will be setting up a LAMP application of your choice.
This course will be equivalent in content covered by a 3 hour college course. The rule of thumb for a three hour course is, three hours in class a week, two hours out of class per week per hour in, for a total of 9 hours per
week. Since we generally won't be meeting in person and I won't exactly be lecturing to you, you might get away with 6 hours per week if you are really focused. The class will
start very soon! And will last approximately 16 weeks.

Here is an update on the college credit. Southwestern College department of Computer Science (http://www.sckans.edu/digital/compScience/comp_sci_home.htm) has stepped forward to offer college credit for the course. Since I am teaching it for free they are offering a discounted rate. This is an optional extra that you can use if you want, but is not a requirement for taking the course.
$55 per credit hour for High School Students (we actually have two in the course)
$95 per credit hour for Undergraduate
I think we are almost comletely full in the course. I will post access information and course confirmation in the next 24 hours.
any place still available?
I just read about the class!
At what dates/hours will this course occur? (GMT time)
If any seat available, include me, please. I've sent a message directly to your private e-mail, so count my both requests as one person.
Me! Me! Me! Me too! Pleeeeease!!!
What do I need to do to sign up!
Glad to see one of your bright postings again , I haven't noticed you around much recently?
Sign up for an account on our Moodle server
Enrollment key is linux101
I have recruited a second facilitator, so that we can take all of you that originally replied to my post. We may end up splitting into two groups to make posts managable.
Your oodle is not actually accepting new sign-ups.
You will need to enable this before any of us can sign up for accounts
Can you please give us information in detail what are the topics that we need in LINUX for installing / configuration / maintain moodle? It would be great if you reply ASAP.
You've replied to a very old discussion and I'm afraid Jonathan Moore no longer subscribes to this forum.
As your question is very technical, I suggest you repost it in a Using Moodle forum: Installation problems is probably the best one.
