command line tutorial
I would like to ask your opinion; if there was a tutorial
series, that teaches command line for say, SOHO or small
owners, or students, or administrators, or IT interns; if it was
provided on dvd, along with manuals, and plenty of illustrations,
examples, and breakdowns completely explaining every switch,
variable, statement, condition, etc along with website support;
and loadable files to use as examples to study on, what would you
think of it along with the pros and cons?
Please dont get me wrong; Its just that ive read several manuals on the
subject, and theyre so technical, and cryptic, its easy to struggle. Lucky for me, ive
become good at understanding this subject.
I simply believe that I can do a better job of explaining command line concepts, and batch
scripting so that the average person can really understand. For example, are you familiar
with the "video professor" series that uses a very user friendly approach to teaching?
The illustrations are presented with pre selected mouse movements on the screen that show
you exactly where to move your mouse, and click, step by step. Though command line is mouse,
and GUI free, I think something similar to showing each command typed, and entered with
results presented, and explained (before the student types in anything, just like the
"video professor" series) would go a long way to helping the student understand. I would
present this on DVD as a classroom style teaching tool. Explaining each command switch,
option, etc, with a large video screen tool that I would use as a virtual blackboard.
Just as the "video professor" would lead you with a cursor step, by step, my series would
similarly do the same.
Holla if you feel me.
