GNOME and KDE development course

Recently we have finished creating the materials for the Application development for GNOME and KDE course we have been working on for CENATIC. It is a modular course, so for example you can take only the modules for GNOME programming or KDE programming. It has been designed for on-line training (using e-larning systems that support SCORM format, as moodle), presential learning or mixed combination of boths. These are the included modules:

Each module is composed of:Activities include questionnaries, exercises, forums, irc tutorials, etc...
The format we chose for the materials is OpenDocument, mostly for the easy content creation WYSIWYG using OpenOffice and the flexible XML formats that allows us automatic conversion into html and SCORM generation. Of course, all the materials are available under a free license (CC-by-sa). This is how it looks like inside an e-learning system:

Now we are in the review process before releasing the first "stable" version, so we invite anyone in the GNOME and KDE community to send comments, suggestions, corrections, additions, etc... All the contents are available at the desktopsl project forge and you can joing the desktopsl-devel mailing list to send any feedback.

There is still no section on asseccibility.
Accessibility concerns must be adressed already at the beginning from the dev. tools, libraries, frameworks, testing tools. Please make this a section before you release it to the public. Problems with access should always be a showstopper since it will take many times the effort to make changes afterwards in a software project.
Both Human interface guidlines and accessibility guidlines are critical for building great apps nomatter which platform your building for. Developers need to take in acount the corner cases and that that newbies as well as initiated people will be using there apps.
