Sounds like you could provide a lot of information in relation to networking and
such. As I mentioned, I envision a 3-Term course. Not quite that structured, but
you get the idea. Each term would be made up of modules. Each module could cover
a basic subject. The first term would take the non-Unix type person upto the
confident User level. The second term would build on this base for general
System Admin qualifications. The third term would then fill in the networking
and security info giving the student enough data and knowledge to pass a general
Sys-Admin certification. Your areas would provide a fair bit of the third term
Just to emphasise, Each 'Term' would be made up of modules. These modules would
actually be self-paced and cover one particular area. So now we need a
break-down each 'Term' into modules. I think one to two weeks per module should
be a good target to shoot for. These modules could also be combined with files
for actually practising with. People with some experience, could then skip
modules that they are already familiar with, and concentrate on the areas they
need to work on. The idea is to provide the information and tools to allow
people to build there skills up to pass a certification, not to get them to
'check-off' modules to finish the course. If you could use these ideas to
organise your expertise areas into modules, I could start downloading the info
to my system and build up the course.
If others are interested in helping, We need to start defining the areas of
training needed, and break them down into a modular structure. I'm open to ideas
and suggestions. I'm offering my system and as much hard-drive space as I can
get for gathering this all together. I hope to gain the experience and skills to
one day call myself a qualified System Admin type. The final goal is to develop
a System Admin course that the ILUG can contribute to the Linux world at large.
We've got the ball starting to lean, lets get it rolling!

Are some of the areas in which I could possibly write
extensive documentation, for the Newbie.
