We just became a Red Hat Academy and you can guess who got put in charge. We've been teaching Linux for a while with the NDG material But are planning to switch over to the Red Hat courseware. We are contemplating combining the 124 and 134 courses into a single 16 week offering.
I'd be curious to hear what other think.
Associate Professor of Information Systems
Hi all! I currently used the Red Hat curriculum in my IT Infrastructure course to get students introduced to Linux and familiarize themselves with the operating system. Many of them have never even seen Linux, so it's a great way to expose them to somethhing new while building an important skill set.
I also use this opportunity to introduce them to virtualization so that they can learn how to build their own Linux environment outside of the classroom for further exploration and training.
I'm mostly using the RHA content embedded into the existing course content for IT Infrastructure, so we aren't running a full-fledged course exclusive to RH quite yet. I have a System Administration course proposal going through our curriculum committee this semester that would hopefully put the RHA System Admin I course as the primary focus of this new course beginning next academic year.
My name is Paul Chance, and I'm an assistant professor at College of the Mainland in Texas City, TX. I've been teaching two 16 week courses that focused on the old Linux+ materials, along with A+, Security+, and a handful of other courses when needed. I applied as a Red Hat Academy when I saw that Linux+ was converting to a single test, and I didn't think that would fit our two course format. I'm really excited by the Red Hat content, and I've already setup a trial account with NDG to evaluation the online labs. I'm not exactly sure how the classes will be formatted, but some of the post on here regarding assessment have been really useful. I think the courses will be a combination of the online HTML materials, NDG Labs (with screenshots, thanks!) and some additional in-class labs and exams created by me. With new A+ materials coming out too, this is going to be a busy summer.
OK, Fun Fact time: I knew nothing about Linux until a job sent me to the RH 133 & 253 one week boot camps back in 2001. Talk about eye opening! I'm not sure how much I retained then, but I immediatley started playing with different distros and slowly migrated myself to Linux as much as I could. I'm still learning and enjoying the OS, and amazed by how it's changed over the years. I really enjoy teaching these courses, and I love watching students go from skeptical to enthusiast throughout two 16 week courses.
Oh, one more: A buddy and I also ran a BBS in the Houston area back in the early 1990s called Last Chance BBS. What a small world.....
I will like to become a Red Hat Academy Instructor(or an instructor for the corporate classes). I am based in Northern Virginia and currently certified as RHCE(6 and 7), working on RHCSA 8 now and planning for my RHCA journey.
Any recommendations for tutoring?
What tutor? It's just the same between RHEL 7 and 8, nothing change much. I think for corporate classes you need to contact the local RH representrative for it. This's only for University, College or such
Hello, I'm Benyamin Limanto, I'm new on RHLC, I'm RHCSA graduate (just now, since monday, 27 July 2019), and I'm teaching on Sekolah Tinggi Teknik Surabaya (stts.edu) / now can be called Institut Sains dan Teknologi Terpadu Surabaya (istts.ac.id) ! I will teach RH124 and RH134 on this semester on my university, and Thanks for RH giving a great curriculum. Thanks!
Thanks dennis! I'm exited to teach RHEL to my student!
Good morning all,
I am very happy to join RHA, I'm co-founder of a School of computer engineers in France, École Héxagone (https://www.ecole-hexagone.com). The School has two campuses, one in Versailles (near Paris) and another in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia).
In the academic program, it's very important for us, that the students have lessons on Linux and more specifically on the Red Hat distribution. Internal assessments will be based on passing (and obtaining!) Red Hat certifications, to make it easier for our students to find internships and jobs.
See you soon !
