The Linux Foundation’s Free “Intro to Linux” course – Beginning 1st August 2014

Glad to have a real date for starting this course. I look forward to taking it.

Low Tech Linux


On March 6, the Linux Foundation announced it is building a Massive Open Online Course MOOC program with edX, the nonprofit, open source based, online learning platform launched in 2012 by Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT. The course: LFS101x is based on the popular LFS101: Introduction to Linux, with modifications which reflect the fact that it will be 100% self-paced. LFS101x will be available entirely free of charge and as open enrollment, meaning that students can start the course at any time. We expect this course to become available during late Summer 2014 and users may pre-register on the course page at the edX website.

Since the original release of the above information a start date (1st August 2014) has been confirmed and here’s a special welcome video from Linus Torvalds, the creator of Linux:
