INSTALLING TEACHING.CODES ON YOUR COMPUTER

We recommend that you install Teaching.Codes as a native application on your computer. However, if you wish you may also install it also as a separate virtual machine. 

The latter approach is easier and you may remove it simply by deleting the virtual machine. However, it requires more disk space, and more CPU and RAM resources. You may prefer this approach if you have machine powerful enough to run a virtual machine. Note that the provided virtual machine is a Linux box.

The recommended former approach (native application installation) requires different methods for different operating systems. However, since there is no virtual machine installation, it requires less resources and runs faster.

You may find the installation directives for both approaches below.

A) USING THE VIRTUAL MACHINE

The provided virtual machine is a pre-configured Ubuntu 14.04 OS with Eclipse, and Teaching.Codes plug-in already installed. It is recommended that your computer has at least 4 gigabytes of ram and 12 gigabytes of empty disk space.

  1. Download and install the latest version of Oracle VM Virtualbox from https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads.
  2. Download the Virtual Machine.
  3. Extract the folder in the zip file to anywhere you like on your disk. Open the folder and double-click UbuntuForTeachingCodes.vbox file. This will open the machine in virtualbox.
  4. On Virtualbox, you may configure the machine i.e. assign more RAM or processor for it.
  5. Start the virtual machine on Virtualbox.
  6. The username and password for the machine is: student
