OpenLearn : Discovering Chemistry

Just signed upto Discovering Chemistry with Open Learn [1]. This is a 24 hour course from the Open University [2] via their OpenLearn platform.

This is partly for personal interest, partly for career development and will help me develop useful knowledge going forward. I have set up a thread on Discourse [3] to facilitate discussion.

I would like to learn more about Isotope shift , which is mentioned in a arXiv article [4] from 2017. This topic is probably beyond the scope of the chemistry course, but is a good starting point. Hopefully however this Chemistry course can build on what I already know about isotopes at least.

Adapt Learning Suite

As part of the Debian Academy [1], we are currently using Moodle [2] and also Adapt [3] to help create courses. So far I have just had a look at this, but I have found a training guide [4] and was sent a YouTube [5] by David B. So should, with help be able to come up with some ideas for courses.

The idea of Debian Academy, is to help more people in to contributing to Debian, by introducing how to get involved, from packaging, testing. bug reporting and mentoring and much more.

If you are interested in joining please e-mail the team from the Wiki page [1] or join us on IRC – #debian-academy on oftc [6]

Numbers, units and arithmetic

Donate using Liberapay

I have just completed the course 'Numbers, units and arithmetic' with Open Learn. This is an excellent 5 hour course and will be really useful going forward.

Well worth doing if you need a refresher as there are lots of worked examples and activities to have a go at to re-enforce learning.

You can of course, as with any OpenLearn course use this as a reference in the future if you need to revise or revisit how to do something. Full PDF of the course is also .

LibreOffice Learning Resources

As digital skills are an essential part of everyday life. I have created, a new blog, to host information to help people out tasks using LibreOffice.

So far this is blog has covered just the Writer component. This may be extended later, as I have some videos for the Calc Spreadsheet.

The new blog can be found here.

Free Code Camp Update 02/10/2020

I have now completed all the modules in the FreeCodeCamp responsive web design course.

Profile can be found here that details the time line for this. I have also updated my LinkedIn profile with this update.

As yet I have ONLY completed the actual modules and have not undertaken the assessment projects. However my intention was to follow the course to help support Paignton Library Code Club anyway.

#webinar,#learning,#LaTeX,#Overleaf

In an update to my previous post the learn LaTeX resource has now developed really nicely in to an excellent resource.

You can have a go at the exercises using Overleaf or the built in editor.

This resource is now progressing really nicely. Joseph Write did a presentation on this at Tug2020

Resources

You can ask questions on LaTeX forums here

If you do need some help then I can mostly be found on Qoto STEM focused Mastodon instance within the fediverse. I do login to the LaTeX forums from time to time. I seem to be on ScienceForums quite a lot these days discussing either Chemistry, Astronomy or Astrophysics.

Note: I am just trying to promote the above websites, I am hoping that my basic chemistry tutorial can complement.
