Welcome to ULI101 - Introduction to Unix / Linux & The Internet

What This Course is About

This subject introduces students to Unix, Linux and the Internet:

  • Students will learn to be proficient on the command line.
  • Students will do this work in Unix and Linux environments, at the same time learning to configure their login accounts, manipulate data stored in files, effectively use Unix commands and utilities, and write simple shell scripts.

Learning by Doing

Most of the learning in this course occurs through classroom instruction and completion of 2 major online labs (each consisting of multiple sections/topics).

Requirements for Success:

  • It is very important to stay up-to-date with the coursework, and to practice until you have confidently mastered each task.
  • All of the software used in this course is open source software, so you are free to use, modify, and redistribute it. This means that you can install it as many times as you want on as many different computers as you would like. It also means that you can tinker with it -- you can take it apart, see how it works, and put it back together in the same or a different way, limited only by your time and ambition. You are encouraged to experiment and question liberally.
  • The notes that you make during the labs and assignments are your reference material for the quizzes, tests, and assignments. Take really good notes, and if you have questions, experiment and consult with your professor.
  • Carefully read ALL lab instructions and check your work regularly. The labs have been designed with backup safeguards to prevent the student from losing their work.
