Description

This Fundamentals of Operating Systems online training course touches on all of the functions within an operating system and the interrelationships between those functions. This online technical training can be used stand-alone to gain a basic understanding of all of the concepts presented. In addition, Fundamentals of Operating Systems has been designed to follow a companion textbook, Modern Operating Systems by Andrew S. Tanenbaum, for those interested in deeper exploration of the concepts. The companion textbook may be used along with viewing this course or as a resource for later reference when more detailed information is needed.

Prerequisites

Course attendees should have a basic understanding of computer architecture (what is a processor, memory, disk drive, etc.), a general understanding of computer use (including starting and using applications, and creating and using files) and a basic exposure to using computers connected to some form of network. Some knowledge of programming, computer hardware and application design will be helpful but is not required. If you do not have this experience, we recommend the following GogoTraining courses:

 

Objectives

As a result of taking this Fundamentals of Operating Systems online training course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the overall objectives and structure of any modern operating system.
  • Understand the differences and similarities between operating systems.
  • Understand the functions within an operating system and how they work together.
  • Understand what causes many operating system errors and crash conditions.
  • Understand how to effectively use the more advanced operating system features to improve productivity.
  • Be able to decide which operating system approach best suits individual situations.
