Unix-training: a set of tools to teach Unix efficiently

Demo for lab exam
Treasure Hunt example

Unix-training is the public part of the Ensimag’s "Introduction to Unix" course. It is published under the LGPL open-source license in the hope that it will be useful to other schools, and/or that students will have fun reading the source!

The two main elements are:
- A treasure hunt, very appreciated from students. It is made of a set of small exercices, each giving access to the statement of the next one.
- A lab exam, largely inspired from the treasure hunt, but in limited time and with a grade at the end.

Both are available in french and english.

Here are a few useful links:
- The source code is hosted on Gitlab, and can be found here: http://gitlab.com/unix-training (download as tarball from here),
- More information is available in the README file of the distribution,
- Online demo for the lab exam,
- Starting point for the treasure hunt (you’ll need an Ensimag login after a few steps)
- Course’s wiki page and student’s feedback.
