IRC - Many of the lessons/courses that will be run by the Education Focus Group will take place on IRC. For those that haven't used irc before there are a few wiki pages available. Pidgin is installed by default in Ubuntu and Xubuntu for Kubuntu there is Konversation, in addition there are many different irc clients available, including clients to use in a terminal, but an easy to use GUI application is xchat. These links give some information on Pidgin and Konversation,there is a wiki page for Xchat and finally a thread which should help you to reach the irc classroom, there is a reference in the thread to a java applet available from the classroom wiki page.

Virtual terminal - Some of the sessions will make use of a virtual shared terminal
