from College in the Clouds.org

I am a college instructor with more than twenty years of experience. I offer free online courses through our non-profit organization, College in the Clouds. I have written several books, the latest of which is Learn Linux and LibreOffice. More than 100,000 students have used our associated website, LearnLinuxandLibreOffice.org to assisted them in creating their own Linux computer and joining the Linux community. I have recently started a new project called DistroTweaks.org to provide the Linux community with a new way to customize the Linux operating system. I also teach students in the Bellingham School District how to start their own business and build their own website using a Linux computer. For more on this program, visit kidsbizclub.org. My interests include helping students learn how to build their own secure websites and putting the power of the Internet in the hands of the people.

Learn how to use free open source programs like LibreOffice, Fotoxx and GIMP.

Got an older Windows computer and worried about Windows 7 support ending in 2021? No problem – Learn how to replace Windows with Linux! It is super easy!

Whether you are 7 or 70, it is never too early or too late to learn how to use Linux!
