Status message

If you have any questions about this page or if you find any errors, please write a message to the support wall and a Labdoo volunteer will help resolve it. Thank you for helping to improve our wiki pages.

This page provides an overview of the Open Educational Resoures (OER) usually included in a Labdoo laptop. You can download all the content described below from the Labdoo FTP service: http://ftp.labdoo.org/download/install-disk/ or find it on a previously cloned Labdoo computer at /home/labdoo/Public/wikis or in the folder /home/labdoo/Public/xowa/wiki.

Links to content in several languages: English, Spanish, French, German/Deutsch, Arabic, Hindi, Nepale, Portuguese, Kiswahili/Swahili.

Most educational content was taken from different sources such as KHAN Academy aswell as OER2GO project and over 800 wikis (using Xowa tool ). Please notice that except for some user manuals and video tutorials on how to use a Labdoo laptop, Labdoo images for cloning do not include any type of content. That means that after you install the Labdoo image, you have to install the educational content that suits best for your Edoovillage according to the spoken language(s), the users' age, your disk drive's size or specific demands from the teachers and students. This approach (a base image with no content plus separate installation scripts for the educational content) significantly simplifies the process of sanitizing laptops and tablets (making it scalable) and is explained in this conversation.

Of course, you can also browse through the above-mentioned website http://oer2go.org/ and download the content you need by using the tool 'rsync'. However not everybody knows how to use this tool, that is why we prepared and zipped the content in a way that is easily viewed from any browser, and we simplified the process of installing the educational content in your laptops/tablets.

Preparation

  • Create a folder if you haven't, according to the language(s) you need, e.g. /home/labdoo/Public/wikis/EN for English and so on
  • Download the index-file from and into the language folder you are working on, e.g. /home/labdoo/Public/wikis/EN/index-en.html
  • Open this index-file in a tab using the browser of your choice, e.g. Firefox, and save the tabs in its settings, so someone can open it and show it to the students at a school when starting the browser.

Download archive(s) and unzip to content folder

  • Download and unzip the archive(s) to the folder /Public/wikis/xx (xx = language code, e.g. EN, DE, FR, ES etc.) with the user: Labdoo. You can download the archive(s) you need by right-mouse clicking and selecting "Unpack to"
  • Unpack and delete the archive once it is unzipped.
  • If you run several installations please save the archives on a local server or external USB disc drive, so you do not have to download each time each file again.

Index file(s) for an easier access
Labdoo prepared an index file for each language. You will find them in each language folder on our FTP server. Copy them into the local language folder on your laptop and the folder "Public".

Due to the amount of the content, you have to pre-select the content you are about to install and maybe discuss with the school or project partner which content suits best. Another option is to copy the archives to an external device and the traveler/dootripper takes it to the school, so they can decide on-site which content suits best.
