Linux Academy New Features!

New Features!

Our developers and instructors have been working away at bringing you new courses and features here at Linux Academy! Here’s some of the content we released last week:

  • AWS Essentials – A new course from instructor Tom Haslett that will introduce you to AWS, walk you through the process of setting up your own AWS account, and teach you the essentials to get you using AWS’s core services. No prior AWS experience needed!
  • Serverless Concepts – We’re so excited for instructor Johnny Jelinek’s first course, which will teach you the basics of this hot new technology, including AWS Lambda, Google Firebase, and more.
  • Amazon Marketplace – The Linux Academy Android App is now available on the Amazon Marketplace! Study with Linux Academy on your Amazon Fire device.
  • Course Reset – Want to go back and start from the beginning? You can now reset progress on a course you’ve started.

  • New Speed Controls – In addition to the 15 second flashback feature we announced last week, we’ve added new options for video speed. You can watch at 0.5x, 0.75x, 1x, 1.25x, 1.5x, 1.75x, or 2x.
  • New Dashboard – Test out your new dashboard, which will make it easier to find your in-progress courses, learning paths, and bookmarks.

Learning Paths for Individuals

Are you new to the computer world and would like to learn Linux but don’t know where to start?

Have you used computers your whole life, and would now like to get a job using AWS?

Are you highly motivated to learn, but overwhelmed by the amount of choices?

Then Linux Academy Learning Paths are for you!

Learning Paths for Individuals

With subscription to Linux Academy, you can now enroll in a Learning Path. These pre-made course maps show you what courses to take and what quizzes to pass in order to reach your goals.

Red box added for emphasis!

Learning Paths can be accessed from your dashboard once logged in to your account. You’ll now notice a new button at the top of the page. (more…)
