Subject Type:

5.1. Methodological overview

The designed learning process of this subject is designed upon:
  • The learning of concepts and methodologies for the correct system administration through on-site classes
  • The application of such concepts in the problem class to solve different situations and tasks of system administration
  • In the lab classes, the student will implement different aspects on booting, modifying, problem detection and solution application to the operating system and its integration with the network

5.2. Learning tasks

The presentation of the syllabus in the on-site classes.
Problem solving applying the concepts and techniques presented in the syllabus during problem classes.
Development of lab sessions, in a computing facility, to apply the theory in a real environment.
Development of a final more project, more complex than the lab sessions, that provides a more global vision of some man aspect in computer system administration.

5.4. Course planning and calendar

The schedule for the class is as follows:

In the Escuela de Ingeniería y Arquitectura del Campus Rio Ebro:
	On-site and problem classes (3 hours weekly)
	Lab sessions (2 hours every other week). Those are tutored sessions in which students code in small groups
In the Escuela Universitaria Politécnica del Campus de Teruel: Type 1 activities (on-site classes) 2 hours weekly 1 group Type 2 activities (participative character classes) 1 hour weekly 2 groups Type 3 activities (lab sessions) 1 hour weekly The exact hours will be announced beforehand in the school and class web pages. The class projects will be delivered at the end of the quarter, on the listed dates. Student work: To reach the learning goals, students are assume to expend 150 hours distributed as follows:
  • 10 hours self work to prepare and defend practical assessments (type T6)
  • 56 hours, roughly, on-site activities(classroom, problem classes and lab sessions)
  • 81 hours of self effective study (study of notes and reports, problem solving, class and lab preparation, and programming)
