In these classes I use Worksheets and Web Quests as the main source, many worksheets can be used across several ICT lessons so in some instances the students may have already undertaken the work in Cert II IT or Cert II Bus or in ICT classes like AIT

Worksheets explain the elements of the topic with questions and test sections for students to answer

Web Quests cover topics where students must find information on the Internet or in Resource material and answer all questions.

This unit defines the competency required to configure, use and optimise a computer operating system.

The operating system (OS) program is the first program loaded into the computer by a boot program and it remains in memory at all times thereafter. It is strategically placed in that it manages all the other programs in a computer including the allocation and usage of hardware resources such as memory, central processing unit (CPU) time, files access and security, hard disk and other storage management, peripheral devices and provides a menu system to access all other programs installed. These other installed programs are called applications or application programs. Application programs make use of the OS by making requests for services through a defined application program interface (API). In addition, users can interact directly with the OS through a user interface such as a command line language or a graphical user interface (GUI). Operating systems come in a variety of forms. Most use a GUI (graphical user interface) such as with Apple Macs, Windows and Linux, some use command line such as DOS and others have a combination of both  such as Linux and Windows. It is appropriate for students to grasp the fundamentals of both the GUI and the command line (cmd) interface.
