Two Linux Systems Administration Courses



Course One: 85321 Systems Administration: 

This is a third year core computing unit in the Bachelor of Information Technology degree offered by the Faculty of Informatics and Communication at Central Queensland University. The aim of this course is to introduce students to the task of Systems Administration, looking after and maintaining complex computer systems. In particular, it aims to produce students who meet the requirements of a Junior Systems Administrator as outlined in the SAGE Job Description booklet (without the 1 or 2 years experience). The emphasis on practical, real problems means students must have access to a Linux computing platform. Also, here is a Linux Tutorial as an additional study and learning resource for you.
