[Solved for now..still open for suggestions ] How to Make Linux more fun at college ?

Post by HP7 » Sun Jan 21, 2018 12:05 pm

Hello Guys ! :D

I have recently been offered a post as Teaching assistant for Linux and shell programming class :D

If you guys have some interesting resources or life experiences or suggestions to make using learning about Linux based OS and shell scripting more fun , do let me know.
I would love to share those resources with students. :D

Thanks in advance !!

When I took my linux class at the local community college our instructor showed us some short Nixie Pixel YouTube videos - the guys in my class loved them.
Here are just two examples - there are tons of them
