    While we strive to post as many resources for IBM Z educators in this Hub, the point of our user group is still to share and learn from each other! Please feel free to share any of your favorite resources for teaching the next great IBM Z minds here in this forum. Simply reply to this message and include a link or attachment to your go-to resource.

    Let me preface this reply by saying that I'm not an educator. I'm just a student here who happens to be one of the IBM Z Student Ambassadors :)

    I've compiled some interesting learning resources which may prove useful for your students (and maybe even yourself) over on the Student Hub. Feel free to check it out and share it to your students and colleague!

    Additionally, if you want to introduce mainframes to your student, feel free to reach out to me and I'll be happy to share about enterprise computing (and Master the Mainframe) to your students, or if I'm unable to (most likely due to time zone), connect you to other ZAmbassadors who will surely be happy to help you. You can reach out to me via DM here or through the Master the Mainframe Slack linked on my signature.

    Thank you!

    p.s. I think educators also have access to teaching materials and mainframe access through the Academic Initiative :)
