Edubuntu WebLive allows you to start a limited Edubuntu session from your web browser. It is meant to demonstrate some basic capabilities of Edubuntu for a period of 2 hours. After that period the session is destroyed and a new session may be requested.
You can basically think of it as a Live CD that you use over the Internet.
On many systems, you will probably not need to do anything to prepare for Edubuntu WebLive, but in certain cases you may need to install a Java plugin. This is quite easy, you can determine whether you need a Java plugin by visiting the WebLive Page and filling in the required details as described in the section below. If you receive an error message stating that you do not have Java installed, you need to install Java.
Installing Java will be different on each operating system. On Ubuntu and derivatives, you simply need to install the icedtea-plugin package and restart your browser. For other systems, please refer to the Get Java page.
The NoMachine NX Client will now open. It's a Java program that will connect you to the remote Edubuntu session. Click "Continue" when it prompts to do so. You will then be prompted to enter your username and password that you registered with. Do not check the guest user button, as no guest users are available.
When you have logged in successfully, an Edubuntu session will start up full-screen. To end the session, click on the red power button circle on the top right of the screen. Click on logout and confirm that you wish to do so. You will then return to your normal session.
We hope that you enjoy this service!
