This site is excellent as a teaching tool for students who are not familiar with Linux. I spent about 1 hour browsing through the various sections of each module and I was very impressed. The modules are very elementary, but for beginning Linux students, this would be an excellent way to learn the commands. It is easy to use and the students are given the opportunity to practice the commands, with immediate feedback on their success. There are also intermediate quizzes as well as an end of module quiz to test their skills.
The site uses pop-up windows for feedback and uses a good combination of text in the left window with an actual Linux command line in the right window.

I spent approximately 1 hour exploring the materials related to this interactive tutorial. I have the quality of the content to be great even though it was limited -- it succeeds at covering the tip of the iceberg but has great potential of going even further. I belive that this would be a great enhancement to any course where a student needs to become familiar with the Linux operating system. The modules where easy to use and set up for both the Linux and WinTel operating systems although they may be available for other operating systems in the future.
