This course introduces students to different operating systems such as DOS, Windows, UNIX and Linux. The topics covered are: the tasks of operating systems such as controlling and allocating memory, prioritising system requests, controlling input and output devices, facilitating data networking and managing files, including security and protection.

On successful completion of this course, students will be able to operate any given operating system competently and undertake routine maintenance and optimisation of operating systems. As a result, they will develop skills such as communication literacy, critical thinking, analysis, reasoning and interpretation, which are crucial for gaining employment and developing academic competence.

By the end of this course a student will be able to:

  1. Investigate different operating systems, their functions and user interfaces.
  2. Explore the processes managed by an operating system.
  3. Demonstrate the use of DOS, Windows, UNIX and Linux.
  4. Analyse appropriate techniques and technologies used in distributed and concurrent systems.

There are no formal prerequisites or qualifications required to enroll. Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • As the course is conducted entirely in English, we recommend that learners have a good grasp of the English language, both written and spoken, to gain maximum benefit.
  • Since this is an online course, you’ll need a computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet access. Familiarity with basic computer skills would be advantageous.
  • While you can learn at your own pace, dedicating consistent time to the course will help you understand and retain the material better.
