I've recently released a new course on Udemy called "Ubuntu Linux Fundamentals - Learn Linux Server with Ubuntu"
Here are some key details about the course:
Ubuntu Linux is consistently among the top 5 Linux Desktop and Server distributions.
Many top employers are searching for people who understand Linux.
If you understand Linux, you understand the operating system that powers much of the Internet, and many, many "smart" devices such as phones, tablets, cars, and wireless routers.
You do NOT have to have an extra computer to load Linux on to take this course.
As with all Udemy courses:
You have a 30 day, no questions asked, money back guarantee if you're not fully satisfied with the course.
You have lifetime full access to the course and all updates and additions.
Ubuntu's a great place to start learning Linux. It's a well maintained, full featured, well documented and supported, free operating system.
