Welcome to ULI101 - Introduction to UNIX/Linux and the Internet

What This Course is About

Unix and Linux represent the operating system technology underlying many of the services of the Internet. This subject introduces students to Unix, Linux and the Internet.

Students will learn the core utilities to work productively in a Linux environment. Students will do this work using the shell, at the same time learn to configure their login accounts, manipulate data stored in files, effectively use Linux commands and utilities, and write simple shell scripts.

Accessing Your Linux Computer Account

You will need a matrix computer account to do the ULI101 assignments. If you have never logged into matrix before, check your MySeneca email for confirmation that your matrix account was automatically created after you registered for ULI101. This should happen automatically if you are a new Seneca student and this is your first semester.

Logging in to matrix: After successfully logging into matrix from the college computers, there are several other ways you can login to matrix depending on your operating system of choice.
Please see the following guide for detailed instructions.

In case of problems with:

  • logging into your matrix account
  • matrix not finding your home directory and you cannot start the assignments
  • any other matrix issue

Please emailservicedesk@senecacollege.ca and specify the exact error message you received. It would help if you snap a picture of your screen or take a screen capture of your error message and attach to your email when you contact ServiceDesk through your MySeneca email.
