About Debian Edu / Skolelinux

The Skolelinux Desktop

What is it?

  • Debian Edu

    • is a Debian project to make the best distribution for educational purposes.
      You can read more about it here.

    Skolelinux

    • is the name of a Debian Pure Blend which is produced by the Debian Edu project.
      "Skole" ([skuːl]) is the Norwegian form of "school". Both "skole" and "school" come from the Latin word "schola".

Goals

The goals are

  • to provide a complete software solution using free software ...
    • tailored for the needs and use-cases in educational scenarios.
    • preconfigured for easy installation (standalone, as well as network-wide rollout).
    • easy to use, maintain, and administer.
    • supporting your language natively.

  • to classify and package all free software related to education.
  • to write documentation describing how to use the various software applications (in an educational context).
  • to achieve international availability, currently being translated into XX languages.

Homepage vs. Wiki


Getting started

Download

  • See how to ?download or ?order Skolelinux.

Install

  • Fetch some Documentation and have a look at it. The first chapters of the manual provide a good overview. ;-)

Use

  • Start using your new system! If you encounter difficulties not covered by the documentation, add it once you got help.
  • Remember that Debian Edu is 99,9% Debian, so almost all help for using Debian also applies to Debian Edu.
