The idea is really great.. Im a college going student just entering 3rd semester in Computer sciences .. and am already looking for programmes and training to add to my CV for a better job.. My college, Manipal Institute of technology, Manipal, India, has just recently become a part of the Sun academic Initiative, which has some perks.. Such an educational programme from Fedora would be more than a dream come true.. A lot of us go through books and material but teaching yourself is not as efficient as a mentor telling you what to do and helping you apply your knowledge practically.. Please give this programme thought.. A few hours a week will be enough from the mentors and there will be plenty of students who are interested and want to learn and contribute..
