I agree that the principles of DTP must come first, or at least
simultaneously with the Scribus how-to.

I'm trying to think of a way to tie the proposed Scribus online modules
with Jacci Howard Bear's site. 

And the more I think about this idea the more I conclude that I have
bitten off a whale-size project.

You wouldn't take it because you don't need it.
