Hello, We have added a new feature to the Labdoo platform that allows for the automatic checking/discovery of broken links in any of our online pages and documents. This is important in that as our content (specially our wiki pages) are often modified, sometimes this leads to outdated/broken links (resulting in 'page not found' errors). This new feature (called 'broken links') will help you...

Pictures are a very important part of what we do at Labdoo, because they provide a way for people to see the results of our actions. Good pictures provide (1) transparency as they allow users to see their devices deployed in schools (and not piling up as eWaste) and (2) they motivate people to continue to contribute more laptops and tablets to needy schools. We are starting a small project...

It will take a few weeks/months, before there will be stable, bug-fixed versions, before Labdoo has implemented a new image for cloning, updated manuals, wikis and video tutorials. But then this release again will be our technological platform up to 2020. Please add here your comments, wishes concerning 18....

Hi all, From time to time we receive thank you messages that can be very wonderful and touching. Some time ago Frank from Hub Zurich suggested the idea to create a place where we could add these sentences so others could get to know about them. This idea is similar to the concept of "Labdoo Stories" but used only for short and quick gratitude messages. I have created a temporary document...

Aber seht selbst... In wenigen Monaten werden die Anschaffungskosten wieder...

Hi. While installing Rachel I noticed the package includes certain .bat files that would execute some .exe files. If I am not mistaken, those .exe files would start a kind of PHP server (uwamp) included in Rachel so that Wikipedia can be used with search funtionalities. Again, if I am not wrong, those .bat and .exe will not work on a Linux Ubuntu computer and therefore Labdoo laptop...
