Proceed as follows to use the MoodleBox for the first time.
Step 1: Buy the hardware
The hardware you need for your MoodleBox is essentially a Raspberry Pi (3A+, 3B, 3B+, 4B, 400 or 5), a good power supply and a high-quality microSD card. In addition, a case is recommended to protect the board.
Step 2: Copy the disk image on the microSD card
For this task we recommend that you use the Raspberry Pi Imager utility, which will automatically download the MoodleBox disk image for you. Please also apply the recommended settings when copying the image.
Step 3: Startup your MoodleBox
Insert your microSD card into the Raspberry Pi slot and power it up. The red LED lights up, and after a few seconds the green LED lights up intermittently. If you connect the MoodleBox to the network or to an internet router via an Ethernet cable, the mobile devices connected via WLAN can access the internet.
No further settings are necessary. After starting, the MoodleBox is ready and fully functional.
