Student Materials

University of Jordan IEEE student branch is sponsoring this event, they arranged with the university the course regarding the labs, accessibility for university resources, and they burned around 100 CD of Ubuntu Gutsy. Students also were capable to get copy of the Student course guide and since it's only 70MB so I'm ASKING YOU ALL to suggest some other files/tutorials/books/videos to be available for next courses.


  • (around 12 march) A general Free Software/Opensource/Linux session around 12th of March to give students the motive to join the one week course.
  • (16th to 20th ) Ubuntu Desktop Course
  • 22+- March - Ubuntu Installation Festival lead (but hopefully only mentored) by Ubuntu Jordan LoCo Team but the students should be able to run most of it.
