5 away from the magic @OULinux number for @CiscoNetAcad volunteers ...

Exciting isn't it, so close to 168 volunteers and in just under ten days ... I am so incredibly impressed with all of those who have raised their hand and have agreed to be part of this great endeavour.

For the uninitiated; 9 days ago I started putting our requests for volunteers to support a Linux community. Whose sole intention is to support Schools/Colleges and other educational establishments become centres able to teach Linux Essentials to students.

Rather than teach the teachers to teach the subject, they will get access to the material with the cavaet that they must self teach before enrolling students. But as we all know, that is not always possible as we do have those special questions that need clarification.

Enter the community.

All the volunteers have been co-opted as Cisco Academy instructors, they also have the same material and the same benefits. We only ask that they consider offering 30-60 minutes of their time (a week) checking the forums and answering questions.

We will also ask the schools to offer the same, they are getting this resource for free, so while they ask questions they will also answer questions when they are able.

By the 1st of November, we should have the first school join us (they are in the queue), so lets have some fun.
