Lernid is a desktop application designed for connecting to and participating in online learning events for Ubuntu such as Ubuntu Open Week and Ubuntu Developer Week – all in one application. No more masses of open browser tabs and IRC clients – just Lernid. Awesome!
In just under one-hour (7PM UTC/GMT) the irrepressibly nice Jono Bacon (Developer and Ubuntu Supremo) will be hosting a demo to show off the Lernid to the masses and you, too, can join in!
First things first, you’ll need to install Lernid. The safest and easiest way is to install it via its PPA.: –
- sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lernid-devs/lernid-releases
- sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install lernid
Open up lernid NOW from the Applications > Internet sub-menu.
Once open, choose’ Ubuntu Example Week’ from the drop-down menu in the pop-up and enter a username.
Click connect and you’ll be taken to the main application; a window full of information – a wiki page, a classroom list (empty) and an IRC ‘connect’ box. Like so: –
