I'm getting a thin terminal lab after break and am interested in
developing a curriculum that would exist in parallel with the
programming classes I teach so that students learn a little bit more
about Linux each year in my class. Ideally, by the third year, they'd
be able to take and pass the Linux+ exam that CompTIA offers (because
our state vocational ed department is just gaga over industry
I'll let you know what I come with, assuming I actually manage to
come up with anything, but would be very interested to see anything
other people have developed.
P.S. I think you can teach command line stuff as soon as they can
type fast enough that it's not frustrating. The key, though, is
motivation. They're not going to want to use the command line to do
something they can do easier with the GUI. Finding tasks that are
easier with a few typed commands would be key to making it
interesting for students.
