How to install the MoodleBox

This is the procedure to install the MoodleBox for its first utilisation.

Step 1: Buy the hardware

The stuff you will need to build your MoodleBox is essentially a Raspberry Pi Model 3B or 3B+ with a power supply and a MicroSD card. More information here.

Step 2: Download the MoodleBox disk image

The MoodleBox disk image is available here.

Step 3: Copy the disk image on your MicroSD card

For this operation, use preferably balenaEtcher. More information here.

Step 4: Startup your MoodleBox

Insert your microSD card into the Raspberry Pi 3 slot and power it up. The red LED lights up, and after a few seconds the green LED lights up intermittently. If desired, connect the MoodleBox to the network or to an Internet router with an Ethernet cable to allow connected devices to access the Internet.

There is no other manipulation to do: after the boot, your MoodleBox is ready and totally functional.
