Linux Foundation Makes Linux Intro Training Available in Spanish


The Linux Foundation has announced the immediate availability of a new training course on the edX platform: Introduction to Linux (LF-UPV-101x). Over a million individuals have enrolled in the English version of the course, and this new version provides access to the same content in Spanish.

Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), a technical university in Spain, contacted Linux Foundation Training & Certification about producing a Spanish-language version of the course. The two organizations partnered, with The Linux Foundation providing access to the existing course content, and UPV taking on the task of translating it into Spanish. Both organizations already offer numerous free courses on the edX learning platform, where the new course will be hosted.

Introduction to Linux is designed for experienced computer users who have limited or no previous exposure to Linux, exposing them to the various tools and techniques commonly used by Linux system administrators and end users to conduct their day-to-day work in a Linux environment.

Participants gain a good working knowledge of Linux and learn how to navigate through major Linux distributions, system configurations and graphical interface of Linux, basic command line operations, common applications of Linux, and more.

LF-UPV-101x is available for immediate enrollment.
