If you're new to Linux, the fundamental training here is good. I am now able to navigate command line with greater confidence and have some knowledge in how to edit and search file and folders.

This course covers the main areas and ecosystems related to the Linux OS; although it is thorough in its class, I have found that there were quite a few misspellings on the slides and assignments; moreover, there were also a couple of mistakes on the answers from the tests which did not match the arguments given during the lessons. One last item of concern, this is a course about Linux offered by the Linux Foundation and I have also found proof that it is true that they use Microsoft Windows on the PCs they use, the tutor shows his full screen and it's obviously noticeable at the bottom of it, the Windows taskbar, the start button with the Windows 10 logo, etc. I don't take controversial situations lightly.

This course was ok but the instructor should have used an actual version of Linux such as Linux mint or Fedora or had the student install an actual Linux distribution in either oracle virtual box or vmware. I have used both and had no issues. Although a virtual machine does take up a lot of memory when running inise of windows this is why I run Linux in native mode without any virtualization. Other than that the course was good but an actual Linux distro should have been used instead of a visual studio code terminal

This was a good course, i already had linux knowledge and wanted to go over the fundamentals again as a refresher. I gained some new knowledge, however i suggest one improvement to this course, which is tougher end of module quizzes. the end of module quizzes is just the exact same questions from the small practice tests, so I didn't really feel that tested at times. Apart from that this a great course for anyone who wants to learn the fundamentals of linux.

Some aspects of the instructors code was not shown on the screen. he was talking and I guess writing, but it was not shown. He could have scrolled up his screen or cleared the output before writing more code. Overall, excellent course. I learnt quite a bit and as my aim is to become a devops engineer, this helped me understand the concepts behind some of the linux commands i see devops engineers use.

I like that it moves fast and forces you to look things up on your own but i think this course would be really hard for someone who knows nothing about Linux. There were times when the screen didn't show what was being discussed. I think the output was too long after executing the command and through off the screen recording software

A real nice and lovely course to understand linux. I really appreciated the short and clear videos. However, it will be an improvement if the teacher will explain the editors nano and vim in the first week of the course, in order to make the practice text files we have to work on the rest of the course. Thanks for this course...

So a great amount of this will confuse a NOOB, which is a part of learning, however certain parts of some most modules need simplification. Also I reported an issue to today regarding a quiz question. I'll change the rating once I hear back from the ADMIN or whomever addresses the reported issue.

Pros: teaches several Linux commands and promotes familiarity with the terminal

Cons: does not provide enough examples to thoroughly teach how to use the commands; plenty of times, the command is not even exemplified; that's why it does not deserve 5 stars.

overall a good course that keeps its promise and teaches basic background info on linux and important vocabulary, and gives you a good introduction to the command line terminal and how to handle text files and data streams

some of the video examples did not show the bottom part of the view. I was not able to follow the example during those times. Other than that, it was a good intro training to Linux.

It's wonderful course for beginners in Linux Administrating and IT managers. I like more cases and actual uses commands on Terminal. Thank u for your job and interesting explanation.

Course subjects were carefully chosen and useful, however: educational material was insufficient. Better and more examples, exercises and explanations could be provided.

The course was fantastic I have learned something new. I would suggest to do other 3 courses as well to be good at linux administration and to earn LFCA certification.

It is a perfect course for the beginners. I learned a lot in a very easy way. The better option would be to try labs on VMware by downloading an .iso file of ubuntu.

The course was good, but I didn't like "free exercises" so much. It would be better to have specific task to use the described tools and methods.

Really a 3.5. I feel the videos need to explain certain concepts more as I had to learn them outside of this course.
