New methods for teaching Operating Systems principles

Welcome to my Research Blog. Here I will keep you informed about my progress in researching new teaching methods for Operating Systems classes.

Dagstuhl 2009 (internal workshop) slides (28.06.2009)

Here are the slides this document is in German language of my talk at the PI1 Dagstuhl seminar in June/July 2009.

Methods: Creating a Moodle course for Linux newbies (21.04.2009)

Since I cannot experiment too much with Moodle in my Operating Systems course, I am currently creating a Moodle course with text, audio and video elements for Linux newbies. It is planned as a step-by-step introduction to Linux, covering live systems, disk installation, and first steps with the desktop and some standard apps.

The course will be available online for free, but it's only in German. Here's the link: linux-einsteigerkurs.de (So far, there's only a framework; I've created mostly empty course topics in a Moodle course.)

The Moodle website has some information about certification (MCCC: Moodle Certified Course Creator), and I've considered learning all the bits necessary for this certification. (Full access to the cert information requires registration on moodle.org.)

Literature: Engaging Learning: Designing e-Learning Simulation Games (Clark N. Quinn) (21.04.2009)

While googling Instructional Design I came across an interesting book by Clark N. Quinn in which he proposes methods of teaching via simulation games. I cannot say yet whether this will be useful, but I bought the book, and when time permits, I'll go through it and give a short summary on this webpage.

Methods: 4C/ID: Combining Memory Management and Filesystems (21.04.2009)

As a first measure of implementing the 4C/ID method I am developping a new partial curriculum for the two topics Memory Management and Filesystems. Since there are many similarities in the concepts, I want to teach them in parallel. One of 4C/ID's suggestions is to change between different tasks while increasing complexity of the shown examples/concepts.

I start with writing a lecture notes chapter for the two topics; the latest version is available here.

At the end of this term's lectures I plan to hand out a questionnaire that will ask the students what they think about this combination of the two topics. I will also evaluate the final test's results and compare them with last year's results (only for questions concerning MM and Filesystems) when the course was taught in a classic way (MM and Filesystems as separate topics).

OS Courses: Operating Systems Course in Summer 2009: with 4C/ID and Moodle (02.01.2009)

Next summer I'll once more be teaching Operating Systems I at Munich Univ. of Applied Sciences (Hochschule München), and this time I'll try to implement the 4C/ID model in parts of the course (see posting below). I also plan to move some of the coursework into a Moodle course after having played with this e-learning platform in the current semester (in my "Introduction to Computer Science" course). Lectures will start in March 2009.
