eLearning Open Source
July 5, 2008
OpenVarsity is an initiative for eLearning, or learning with online tutorials, Open Source and Free Software technologies.
As soon as I saw the first prototype of it’s course I was convinced that this would be a great way for newbie enthusiasts to get their hands dirty.
I have already emailed Naveen from OpenVarsity, pledging my full support and being available for any screenshots, tutorials, etc.
I myself wanted to do something on similar lines for OSD, wherethe goal would be to atleast get users started on various topics.
I am currently also experimenting to record Screencasts, so that I can have video’s similar (but instead of comments I will have to do Voice-overs) to Naveen’s. I have installed Istanbul and xVidcap for recording the screencasts, but it seems xvidcap is the best software to have for this.
I have installed Moodle on this site and have am learning to design courses. I wonder if I could upload and integrate videos easily into moodle.
I would love to hear if anyone has any suggestions on what tutorials they would like to see in Basic Linux usage .
