lernid - program for participating in Ubuntu learning events


lernid [options]


This manual page explains the lernid program. This program allows you to easily partici‐ pate in Ubuntu Learning events. It connects to the IRC classroom and classroom-chat ses‐ sions simultaneously, displaying web pages and slides the instructor presents. You can discuss the class and ask questions in the classroom-chat window. Use the message box, at the bottom right of the screen, to send your input to the class. You can ask questions to be answered by the instructor as part of the class by preceding it with the tag "QUESTION:". Checking the checkbox near the message box will do that for you automatically. If the class is being taught in a language other than English the token may change to match. In Preferences, two layouts are available, horizontal and vertical, which switch whether the browser and slides (if any) are on top or on the left of the classroom and chatroom panes. Choose whichever best matches your screen, and your convenience. Other preferences may be set as well. Classroom events depend upon the classroom calendar. Lernid will update its calendar sev‐ eral times an hour. If Lernid doesn't seem to be up-to-date it may be worthwhile to update it yourself using the refresh control on the schedule tab. Many like to keep track of future classroom events. The calendar ical buttons may be help‐ ful to you should you wish to subscribe using your calendar management software or web app. You can easily send a message about the current session, through all your accounts that you have added to Gwibber, by using the "Publicize with Gwibber" option under the "Events" menu.

As you follow a class, assuming the speaker is listed in the schedule, the browser will follow URL's he or she posts.
