How to participate:

To participate in Ubuntu Open Week you will need to join #ubuntu-classroom and #ubuntu-classroom-chat on irc.freenode.net using the irc client of your choice.  There is also a webchat option available for those who would like to participate using the web rather than installing and configuring an IRC client.

Each session is presented in the #ubuntu-classroom channel, while questions are posted in the #ubuntu-classroom-chat channel.  All questions should begin with “QUESTION:” so the classroom bot can identify them.

Most sessions last for around an hour. Contact the #ubuntu-classroom-backstage channel on IRC if you have any problems.
