This was a very easy to use program and the quizzes at the end were of each section were very useful.

Time spent reviewing site: A little over an hour.

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.

Technical Remarks:

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.

Technical Remarks:

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. Each module comes with interactive activities and a self-test quiz that
reveals the answers when you are finished.
