Please email Mark and/or myself w/ your help on the below issue.
I am Account Manager for Red Hat Academy for the midwest U.S., and am
interested in speaking with you.
Red Hat Academy is the new academic curriculum program designed for
accredited schools, whether they are universities, community colleges,
or k-12, to teach Linux skills. The end-result being that the students
who complete these courses will be Red Hat Certified Technicians.
We have spoken to a couple of colleges in Chicago who are interested
in deploying an Academy; however, their Boards have been wavering
because of enrollment concerns. Essentially, they are concerned that
there aren't enough students (full time and part time/continuing ed)
would enroll in such classes to offse their costs.
I am e-mailing you to seek your feedback and suggestions on this issue.
Can your LUG offer any advice on how we can provide these schools some
kind of data and comfort level on the demand for such an education?
Maybe the demand is not there. I am simply challenged in how to
such Linux demand and thought you could offer some insight.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to your feedback.
