Knowledge Base



TBD (details)

The Ubuntu Training Community Team welcomes contributions from all levels. From new users to technical experts, we need your feedback to help create and test the various Ubuntu training products.

The Ubuntu Desktop Course ILT

The first Ubuntu Desktop Course, Instructor Led Training (ILT) was developed using DocBook to design and write the content. The first course was released for version 7.04 and then updated to version 8.04 LTS in late 2008. We are currently in the process of planning the update process for the 10.04 LTS release.

Upgrading the UDC-ILT Course

  1. Identify changes needed see Upgrade Tasks

    • - mailing list - Launchpad bugs - Bzr patches
  2. Organize sign up list by chapter/section for volunteers
  3. Aggregate updates
  4. Create patches in Bzr for changes, merge into final
    • - OO Write v3 can now edit Docbook format (but not very well)
