Linux EDU Tutorial
I wrote a Literacy tutorial last year for Windows because I didn't have the money for textbooks. It included: everything from creating folders, how to create files, how to use a word processor, how to find files you can't see, etc. I was thinking this would perhaps be a good place to start for the Seul project.
I could use Abiword as the word processor, gnumeric as the spread sheet and use gnome as the filemanager.
I will probably also do one for JCC (I will need help with the config of makemake for different language -- any volunteers?) -- because I want to get my programming teacher on board too -- might as well help him. I suppose I should include using netscape too.
Does anyone have experience with THX -- the graphing calculator? I tried this and couldn't figure it out quickly, but it would be helpful for the math people. (As time permits maybe I will include the arrow (& setup), gnome calendar, GnomeCard). Please tell me if I am overlooking any major applications.
I was thinking of doing this in HTML. Mostly pictures (GIFS) and a little bit of explanitory text. If someone wants I can send them my previous tutorial and they can give me feedback (however, at the moment I only have it in MSWord and RTF format).
Once this project is done -- I will probably teach a literacy class using linux/gnome in January/February to test the material for clarity and accuracy. Comments and suggestions about if this is the best place to start and how it should be done will be appreciated.
