Creating and teaching Introduction to Linux as a Master's student
MetadataShow full item record
In this report, I discuss my experience creating and teaching a course called Introduction to Linux. The course provides students with enough knowledge to feel comfortable with a command line in the Linux operating system. Introduction to Linux is geared toward underclassmen in the ECE department at The University of Texas at Austin, though it is open to anyone interested in becoming familiar with Linux. I describe the motivation for creating the course, the methodology I employed when teaching the class, and steps that can be taken to improve the course in future semesters.
