KF5004 - Advanced Operating Systems 1

What will I learn on this module?

The lectures covering the theoretical/standards components of network services and functionality and how they map to a business infrastructure.
The Seminars will cover the current operating systems support for these protocols and services and allow the student to implement these services/facilities and apply them to business needs with a theoretical underpinning.
This module aims to provide an experience in the practical use and application of an operating system in a network environment to provide the essential services required for a commercial organisation.
This module will allow the student to develop skills in the configuration of an operating systems in a networked environment.
The module provides an opportunity for the student to develop an appreciation of services and the practical skills required for developing and deploying network services into a corporate infrastructure.

How will I learn on this module?

The module will be taught as a combination of lectures and seminars.
The lectures covering the theoretical/standards components of network services and functionality and how they map to a business.
The Seminars will cover the current operating systems support for these protocols and services and allow the student to implement these services/facilities and apply them to business needs with a theoretical underpinning.

How will I be supported academically on this module?

You will be supported by laboratory supervision and by being direction to suitable white papers and textbooks.

How will I be assessed?

Summative assessment will be an assignment covering the theoretical aspects and configuration of networking technologies to show an understanding of current trends in network services deployment.

The configuration component will be drawn from practical work that they must complete in the lab. (The assessment will cover all MLO's)

The feedback will then be via a rubric based feedback sheet.
