COMP 1002 - Applied Computer Concepts

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

Course Details

This course or equivalent knowledge is assumed for all other IZUNA COMP courses in Computing Part-time Studies (PTS). Students focus on how a Personal Computer (PC) works and how to apply best practices to secure data and to manage files with Microsoft Window 10. Topics include: An introduction to PC hardware, functions of an operating system (OS), file and disk management, backing up and protecting data, troubleshooting, security, malware and firewalls. Windows 10 Power on self-test, BIOS settings, partitioning, the file system and formatting are also discussed. Hands-on exercises and labs include desktop navigation and using Windows 10 Admin to create user accounts and folder structures. Discussions also include the technical aspects of using Windows 10 in the set-up of a small PC network. There will be a brief comparison of Windows 10 to Windows 7, Linux and Macintosh OS. There are 6 week compressed delivery options for those students with some prior experience, otherwise the 12 week delivery is recommended due to the amount of homework. COMP 1002 is required for the Computer Systems Certificate (CSC), the Applied Computer Information Systems (ACIS), and the Applied Network Administration and Design (ANAD) Associate Certificates. Upon successful completion students will be able to use best practices in a Windows 10 networked environment.
