I am afraid that it sounds as if I was putting pressure on you. I apologise for that. I had not meant that it would just be you giving classes, others should volunteer also. I am putting together a couple of lectures at the moment, one as a brief introduction to C programming, and a second on MySQL. If it is thought that they are sufficiently good I would hope to see the notes on the Linux.ie site in a week or so.
I had completely forgotten about FAS. FAS has some online courses that are reasonably charged and they will give a bit of paper at the end to show satisfactory completion of the course. I have not tried taking any of these courses, but a friend who took their Java course was quite pleased.
