An ECDL curriculum which facilitates the use of any Linux / UNIX tools
or applications is all very well, but this was discussed on the
education at linux.ie list at length some time ago, and nobody was prepared
to do anything substantive towards the goal (myself included).
The ECDL curriculum is available for download as I recall. If someone
had the time (I don't) it would probably be possible to create a course
for certain of the modules. There would be a lot of mind-numbingly
tedious work involved though.
