In the page http://swcarpentry.github.io/shell-novice/ it says the following

You need to download some files to follow this lesson:

Download shell-novice-data.zip and move the file to your Desktop.
Double-click on the zip file to unzip it. You should end up with a new folder called data-shell.
Open a terminal and type:
$ cd
In the lesson, you will find out how to access the data in this folder.

Should there be something after cd? Or am I missing the point of just typeing "cd"? Presumably it should be '$ cd data-shell'

Edit: I see that you mean to have them call into their home directory. The notes don't mention this.

Nop, the instructions are missing one part. Compare to the equivalent in the python lesson.

@Thaerious can you reopen the issue?

@iglpdc with the lesson rewrite, we do want them to start in their homedir, the lesson will get them to the data directory.

@Thaerious, is there any place I could add notes to make this more clear?

I have given the seminar since I posted that comment. I found that at the beginning I was still trying to get the participants up and running and didn't get into cd until part 2, files and directories. I had to explain directories before explaining home directories and then 'cd'.

Is there any way I can help here? @Thaerious
