Announcing our next Boston area Drupal training on Saturday, July 25, 2009, from 8:30AM to 6:00PM, in sunny Davis Square. If you've enjoyed the Drupaltherapy screencasts, then this is your chance to spend a day with the same level of high quality instruction in a supportive learning environment.
Check out the workshop annoucement for information on availability and registration.
There are many great Drupal learning resources, groups, and tools but they can be somewhat disconnected and spread out. Our goal is to unify and bring these efforts together to provide a complimentary program and platform that serves all Drupal learning initiatives needs and efforts.
The Drupal Kata is a new project learning program that provides hands on training in a wide range of areas ranging from site planning, drafting proposals, project management, information architecture, development, design, infrastructure, to business and community. It does this by pairing apprentices with a mentor or mentors, thus gaining exposure to real-world scenarios and connections with the local and global community. The knowledge transfer allows apprentices to become proficient, contribute back to the community, and retain the skills for gainful employment in the field of their choice.
The evolutionary stages of the program seeks to follow through with the Drupal Dojo 2.0 vision by building off complimentary sites and collaborating with existing teams. A collaboration with the Open Media Project will provide a unique opportunity to craft a custom program to provide development help, training, and documentation and marketing on a regional level.
For over a year LA Drupal has been recording our meetings and many of our events. View the videos online... http://ladrupal.blip.tv
Subscribe to our video podcast... http://ladrupal.blip.tv/rss (available directly on iTunes too)
We provide these videos for free for people to learn Drupal of course. Over the next handful of weeks you will see us release videos from our meetings and DrupalCampLA '08. Learn the basics of Drupal, theme design, module development, advanced views, Services module (Flash + Drupal), and many, many more topics all relating to Drupal.

Our goal is to create a curriculum and complete set of training materials derived from the process of building a new site for the Drupal Dojo (and subsequent 'Open Learning and Collaboration Portal' installation profile). We will provide hands on training in areas ranging from site planning, drafting proposals, project management, information architecture, development, design, infrastructure, to community, business, marketing, and program development.Read more
I just saw my latest Drupal article is now published on Adobe.com, and this is the first in a series I have produced.
"Read on to see how you can set up a Drupal site in just 10 steps. Learn about adding content, altering menus, modules, and themes, and how to get your site ready for search engines and users."
Read the article now at http://www.adobe.com/devnet/dreamweaver/articles/drupal_site_in_10_steps...
So I made my first attempt at a screencast. It's pretty simple and straight forward - I hope someone finds it useful. It just goes through activating fbconnect and twitter modules. I also go over some of the basic feature/function to get you up and running asap. Enjoy!

Does anyone know of an existing curriculum package that a teacher could use in high school, college, or youth group setting to train students in web design using Drupal? The students would have no previous web design experience.
If not, is anyone interested in contributing to a curriculum? Maybe using training modules you have already developed?
Drupal For NGOs is a monthly series of events aimed at empowering NGOs to implement and manage their websites by knowing which modules to use and how to configure them. Each month will cover a topic in detail, showcase recent projects, and feature a Drupal question and answer session.
Sun Microsystems is hosting this month's Drupal For NGOs, and will also be providing presentations on Scaling And Optimising MySQL and Backing Up MySQL Data.
We will also be giving away two Drupal books that Packt Publishing have generously contributed:

There is a lot of teaching content out there, but there is no central place that can get you to all of it.
Yesterday we had a discussion about the future of resources aggregation and moderation for Drupal (e.g. videocasts, recordings, audio, write-ups,...). I've got a part (the first 30 minutes are missing) transcript of the IRC session at http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dgtrwwgw_1dtmqc5c2
There were basically 3 use cases:
1) Drupal Dojo where people come to teach and learn - sort of social network for learning and mentoring
2) A Drupal materials aggregator - that collects everything and that is community moderated
3) A moderated content list - where a list of comprehensive materials is made available
Now that the Dojo has it's very own 100-seat-capable DimDim account for online learning and collaboration (access info here), there should be all sorts of ways we can leverage the platform (and 1700+ members) to demonstrate the various uses of Drupal in educational settings and collaborate on tools and solutions.Read more
