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 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 4 major online assignments (each consisting of multiple sections/topics).
Requirements for Success:
- It is important to stay up-to-date with course work, and to practice until you confidently mastered each task.
- All software used in this course is open source software, meaning you are free to use, modify, and redistribute any changes you make. In addition, this also means you can install it as many times as you want on as many different computers as you would like. It also means 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 ask for help should you get stuck.
- The notes you make when learning ULI101 during your classroom labs and when doing assignments will help you prepare for quizzes, midterm, and the final exam. Be sure to write down what you learned, and if you have questions, experiment and consult 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.
