The Linux Learning Circle program enables libraries to offer accessible career-change training, facilitated by existing library staff and without the need for onsite subject experts. Students are offered no-cost education (using CC-licensed materials) and credentials towards careers in the growing field of Linux and open source software. It is specifically designed to offer career-shifting options to those displaced by COVID-19 or other circumstances. The panel will introduce the program and solicit community feedback, adding experience gained through trials running in Toronto libraries.
