These "how to" tutorials are made for the absolute beginner in the Ubuntu GNU/Linux environment. They will walk you through the process of understanding Free and Open Source Software, downloading and installing your OS, learning the basic tasks of your new desktop, customising the desktop and learning about ways to get help from the community. More advanced tutorials will follow whenever possible.
Most tutorials follow the same structure: they are divided in 10 short videos of about 2 minutes each and tackle one particular topic. Each tutorial is a playlist that will play all videos of the tutorial one after the other. Don't hesitate to divide your learning sessions in several parts. You can pause the videos to practice and jump to any video of the tutorial by hovering your mouse over the video or clicking on the icon . If you like them, feel free to comment and share to encourage us to do more video tutorials! Your feedback is very important to improve these tutorials, please do speak your mind if you have good or bad things to say about them.
