Note: To download a video for offline use, browse the "media" sub-directory. First select the desired video, than add "media" (without the quotes) to the end of the URL. A listing of files will display. Download the file that ends with the ".mp4" extension. Cook some popcorn, sit back, and enjoy the soothing sounds of Linux. :)

Red Hat Academy

We will use Red Hat Acaemdy as our primary resource. The Academy provides 11 workbooks that provide an overview of Linux Systems Administration. Included are also optional pre-tests to assess your Linux knowledge before and after the course. There are lab exercises and tests included that will comprise your final grade.

To get started, you will need to create a Red Hat account. Do NOT use capital letters or special characters in your account name.
