The Linux Foundation will offer a Linux development course on edX, the massive open online course (MOOC) platform developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University.
The foundation’s MOOC will offer the same material taught in its introduction to Linux class, which is designed for people with little to no experience with the open-source OS.
The Linux class will be free and available to anyone with a Web connection.
