We request all our Mentors to share their views/problems/suggestions regarding the DVD, its installation and content.

The queries raised till now have been regarding installing Ubuntu alongside Windows 8 and in Macbook. Apart from that there were queries regarding installation of Moodle. If any of the Mentors are facing problems with the installation of Moodle, you can share it on this platform.

Looking forward to active participation by all.

Hi I have installed Ubuntu from the CD in a laptop,now trying to figure out the rest of the steps.How do I Login to Moodle as 'admin' ? I used the password from the password.txt file but get the message of invalid login.

How do I ensure all 65+ softwares have been installed?

Please consider an orientation for the mentors , it will help in starting off the program much smoothly.

Any guidance will be much appreciated.

The DVD (Course on ICT in Education for Students) is custom made DVD specially for the ICT in Education course. You need not to worry about installing moodle or other softwares. They will be installed automatically with the Ubuntu.

If you wish to check weather the software is installed or not, open the list of all 65 software available in folder Preparatory Documents and then Click Dash Home button on top left corner, type name of any software in search bar.

I got the DVD and installed ubuntu successfully along with Windows 7 as the instructions given in documentation available on DVD.

Moodle is preinstalled with ubuntu. There is no need to install moodle using sudo.

To access moodle after installing ubuntu (from the DVD (Course on ICT in Education for Students):

  • Open firefox or Chrom web browser
  • type localhost/ictcurriculum/
  • you are at the Frontpage of Moodle site specially designed for ICT in Education course.

Login as Admin:

  • Open the Preparatory Document folder
  • Open the Moodle Password.txt file and find the username (admin) and Password


Hope this will help.
