How to Teach Online Courses (17 September 2022) · Events (Indico)

A few years ago I was involved with Debian Academy. For various reasons the project came to a halt.

Fast forward to 2022 and the project has now been restarted, the first course being presented is on how to create a course using Moodle. The will be presented from the 17th September.

The course is free to sign up to, you will need an account on the Moodle system. Further details are below.

Over time more courses will be created, which is one of the reasons the above course was created, so others can also create their own courseware.


Date : Saturday 17 Sept 2022, Time :14:00 → 15:00 UTC *

More information

If you would like to chat with some of the team members, then we hang out on IRC, using the oftc network, channel #debian-academy

Courses and further reading:-

courses Courses related to Kali Linux

Learning how to use these and the associated tools is way beyond the scope of what I am doing here. I would therefore suggest you look in to other learning options.

There are many other providers, not sure about any in Torbay, we do seem to be in the dark ages down here. But Tech Learning Collective do several courses.

Tech Learning Collective

I have listed some providers below, and would hope that the forum may, eventually be a good source of information too.

Tech Ethics

Another interesting post on Mastodon. The original blog article may be a few years old but seems to raise some good points about teaching ethics in Technology and a link to a spreadsheet with where you can learn about this within courses.


We can perhaps discuss further at the Feb Stem group meeting
