Ubuntu Classroom Team Presents: ClassBot

5 March 2010 511 views 3 Comments

It is with pleasure that I am introducing you to a wonderful new tool for the Ubuntu Classroom. ClassBot, written by Nathan Handler which will automate many of the tasks that need to happen in #ubuntu-classroom and #ubuntu-classroom-chat on irc.freenode.net. Many hours were spent by Nathan writing the code and testing ClassBot. He also wants me to mention that I wrote the specs for ClassBot and did most of the bug testing. ClassBot has already handled the 48 Hours of Ubuntu Manual Learning event and is currently taking care of Ubuntu Opportunistic Developer Week.

If you are an instructor, or would like to be, and want to test out ClassBot, you can contact Nathan or myself and we can set you up with a demonstration session. Also, don’t forget to check out the Using ClassBot wiki page.

Also, don’t forget to follow the Ubuntu Classroom on identi.ca and twitter!

    Thanks a lot Chris for writing this blog post (as well as for all of the other amazing work you have done on ClassBot). Without you, ClassBot would be nowhere near what it is today. Keep up the outstanding work!

    I’m pleased to see that other projects are using social media to their advantage as well 🙂

    Good work guys, it was very useful for us in the manual project. We hope to use it again sometime this year!

    I taught 5 sessions last week. First, if you are thinking about teaching a class, do it! Chris and all the people in #ubuntu-classroom-backstage are incredibly supportive and helpful. Second, after I tried ClassBot I had to wonder how I ever did a class without it.

    Great job #ubuntu-classroom community! You folks ROCK.

    Cheers, Rick
