This is related too, I gave some feedback on a recent very good workshop
the Mozilla festival.

They had loads of laptops that they had set linux up on very quickly.
I'd love to be able to do this for teaching video editing.

What's the best way to do this?

nice one


Hi there,

I just wanted to give some feedback on the Libre Graphics workshop that
I attended at the Mozilla festival given by Ana, David and Ginger.  I
thought it was really good and learned a lot, not only about the
software but also the process of giving workshops in this area and context.

The activities were clear and pitched well for the audience. It covered
a lot of ground and was pretty ambitious for a conference of this kind.
Most other people were keeping their workshops discussion based or doing
very simple demos of software.

I felt the intro to the workshop was good and very clear, covering both
theory and practice. It got people focused for the task ahead. Everyone
was given their own laptops which made it quicker to get on with the
tasks. The first task was well chosen, resources were already on the
desktop on the laptop.  Chapters of a creative commons book were split
up and divided between participants to layout in Scribus.

These conferences are tricky as printing equipment is tricky to get hold
fo. Also so much is going on that people are constantly feeling like
they may be  missing out and are a bit shifty! I have to admit I was one
of the shifty ones, so didn't stay for the full workshop 

Maybe you guys could tell us about your decisions on preparing the
workshop? I know that its always useful to share ideas and techniques on
delivering workshops. I know you guys had to change direction a bit
because of the lack of printing but maybe you could share the overall
plan. Also I wanted to ask if you had any advice on setting up the
laptops in the way you did, is there a quick way to do it to laptops you
are borrowing?

Anyway, I just wanted to share this because I thought you guys did a
really good job.

nice one,
