Types of Hubs

There exist two types of hubs at Labdoo:

  • Dropping points. These are hubs that their only task is to provide a place where people can bring their unused laptops and tablets. These hubs then hold the laptops until Labdoo volunteers from a sanitation hub come pick them up.
  • Sanitizing points. These are hubs that perform both the task of collecting laptops (just like the dropping point hubs) and the task of sanitizing them, which consists in cleaning them physically, erasing all its digital content, and installing the Labdoo educational package as explained in this wiki page. While the sanitation point hubs can collect laptops by themselves, they can also pick up laptops from a dropping point if they have one near their area.
