Welcome to The Siganto Digital Learning Workshops

The Siganto Digital Learning Workshops (SDLW) is a series of workshops where you get hands-on experience with taking apart, breaking and fixing a computer, then build your own custom-built computer operating system using free software you have chosen and installed yourself.

At the end of the series not only will you have the skills and knowledge to repair and upgrade everything inside your computer, you get to take the computer home. It's yours to keep!

SDLW assumes no prior knowledge of computer hardware, and begins with the basics of computer software using clear, simple language.

This program was developed State Library of Queensland (SLQ) in Australia. All original material is released under a Creative Commons share-alike non-commercial license.

This wiki is your complete resource for the SDLW workshop program. It contains the workshop guidelines and other resources to help you complete the SDLW program.

We've tried to define all jargon and acronyms either in the text or with links to Simple Wikipedia. Simple Wikipedia is a smaller, less technical version of the main wikipedia site.

However, if anything is still confusing to you we have not done our job properly so do ask your facilitator to clarify and we'll do our best to amend the content.

On the top left of the screen is a sidebar menu. You can find the main pages of the wiki here.

On the top right is a table of contents which shows the sections of each page. This can be closed to save space.

On the bottom right of each page is a button which returns you to the top of the page.

From the 'page tools' menu on the right hand side you can use the 'Export to PDF' button to create a .pdf document of the current page, which is then ready to print or save.

To create a document you can use in Microsoft Word, try the 'ODT Export' button.

There is a button at the top right which will open a slide show in a new tab. Think of this slide show as a simple presentation of the wiki content.

Use the arrow buttons or keys on your keyboard to navigate the slideshow.

To see an overview of the whole slideshow use the 'ESC' key on your keyboard.
