Ubuntu Resources:
  • Ubuntu Learning - this is a group focused on trying to develop courses for new users. The courses will be wiki/forum based, irc based or a combination of both. They also have a materials page that may be useful.
  • Tutorials and Tips forum area - this is an area of the Ubuntu Forums that is moderated (the posts are approved) and is filled with a great deal of useful information. They also have a Tutorial of the Week thread which is a stickied thread of the best of the best.
  • Edubuntu - "Ubuntu" is an ancient African word, meaning "humanity to others". The Edubuntu Linux distribution brings the spirit of Ubuntu to schools, through its customized school environment. The current version of Edubuntu is aimed at classroom use, and future versions of Edubuntu will expand to other educational usage, such as university use.

I am looking for some support... I need to install drivers for the Creative Labs video camera (N10225, model #PD1130) I have on hand. Can anyone provide some assistance?

Just installed Ubuntu on "my" home computer - as opposed to my "wife's." : )  I am very much enjoying the process of exploring.  Any hints or tips that I need to be aware of as I move from Windows to Ubuntu?

I'm not a big user, but as part of my Year 10 Computer Studies hardware and upgrade unit, the students install Ubuntu, and configure the box for network use. In Senior College Computer Science I'll use the neatly arranged network tools in our networking/protocols unit - and do similarly in individual projects, should my Year 10's choose a networking/server configuration/security module.
It's a neat OS, saves me licencing costs, exposes students to a new OS environment - and one on which my senior college can still complete their Java programming modules...

I'm running iTalc on a lab of 29 PC's. I did not do the installs - but I know Indigo has done iTalc installs. However, once the installs were done all I had to do to get up and running was create a classroom on the teacher computer (use the classroom manager) and right click to add the student computers. Unfortunately you have to add them one at a time.

Let me know what you do with iTalc, I've just started with it and it seems to have great possibilities.

I have been an Ubuntu user for the last three years (FreeBSD for 8 years). I currently run a lab of 21 Ubuntu 8.10 boxes at school.

I am interested in getting iTalc up and running for the lab. It installs easily on the teacher and student computers using apt-get. But, I do not know how to configure the teacer/student workstations to properly communicate with each other??

Anyone know anything about iTalc?

In this article a college student is claiming Ubuntu is responsible for her dropping out of college.

Hello Everyone,
I use Linux Mint, which is based on Ubuntu. It's without a doubt, my favorite distro. I started about a year ago with Linux Mint 4 (based on Gutsy), and I never looked back. I installed it on all 5 of my boxes, with one being a dual boot with Windows XP for those few times when I have no choice. I can't wait to try out the server edition of Ubuntu, and I intend to set up Edubuntu on a box for my nephew. I just wish Wimba had better support for linux.

Hello... I have been playing with Ubuntu for the last 3 years, and used the server version for over a year.
I think Ubuntu is one of the better Linux distributions available. I have just recently came across a couple of real nice distros based off of Ubuntu, these would be Linux Mint and the newest one Comfusion. What I really liked about these distributions, is how easy it is to install applications. They both have a nice feel to them as well. With the economy and school budgets in the condition they are, I think now is the time that schools look more into Linux and other Open Source software. Maybe with some guidance here, more schools will be able to make move that will make technology more affordable in their schools. I am looking forward to good discussions, and hopefully learn more, as well as helping others if I can!

Hey all, I've actually not yet tried any Linux before but I'm gonna give it a shot and see what happens.
