Teaching System Administration

Steve VanDevender
2012 USENIX Large Installation Systems Administration Conference  
For the past twelve years I have taught a one-term college-level class introducing students to the discipline of system administration.  ...  I discuss how the class was created, the considerations that went into designing the class structure and assignments, student outcomes, how the class has evolved over time, and other observations on teaching  ...  I chose RCS as the version control software because it is widely available, demonstrates basic version control concepts clearly, and, unlike some more modern version control systems such as CVS or Subversion  ...

Teaching operating systems using virtual appliances and distributed version control

Oren Laadan, Jason Nieh, Nicolas Viennot
2010 Proceedings of the 41st ACM technical symposium on Computer science education - SIGCSE '10  
Students learn more through hands-on project experience for computer science courses such as operating systems, but providing the infrastructure support for a large class to learn by doing can be hard.  ...  To address this issue, we introduce a new approach to managing and grading operating system homework assignments based on virtual appliances, a distributed version control system, and live demonstrations  ...  First, it enables students to learn how to use a production version control system.  ...

Academic Success Assessment through Version Control Systems

Ángel Manuel Guerrero-Higueras, Camino Fernández Llamas, Lidia Sánchez González, Alexis Gutierrez Fernández, Gonzalo Esteban Costales, Miguel Ángel Conde González
2020 Applied Sciences  
This work demonstrates that it is possible to assess if a student can pass a computer science-related subject by monitoring its interaction with a version control system.  ...  To fit predicting models, three subjects of the Degree in Computer Science at the University of León are considered to obtain the dataset: computer organization, computer programming, and operating systems  ...  Version Control System All the considered practical assignments required the use of a VCS; in particular, a Git repository.  ...

Kinetic art and embedded systems

Erik Brunvand, Paul Stout
2011 Proceedings of the 42nd ACM technical symposium on Computer science education - SIGCSE '11  
We describe a cross-disciplinary collaborative course that pairs computer science and engineering (CSE) students with art students to engage in joint engineering design and creative studio projects.  ...  In this paper we describe the course content, the collaborative process, the materials used in the class, and experience with a pilot version of the course taught in Fall 2009 at the University of Utah  ...  It is embedded into a complete device including hardware and mechanical parts rather than being a separate computer system. Kinetic art using embedded control is a marriage of art and technology.  ...

Version control usage in students' software development projects

Pekka Mäkiaho, Timo Poranen, Ari Seppi
2014 Proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Computer Systems and Technologies - CompSysTech '14  
The core tools of computer science curriculum also include version control systems; therefore it is essential to teach the usage of such tools to all computer science students in universities.  ...  We noted that the understanding of main principles of using version control is not always clear to students and this should be taken in account in teaching.  ...  How do you accomplish the interim and final releases (either with or without source code control)? Q1.9.  ...

Gitsubmit and VeCVL: Integrating Version Control in Introductory Computer Science Education

Nathan Eloe
2017 Proceedings of the 23rd International Conference on Distributed Multimedia Systems  
In this work, an assignment submission system built around the Git version control system is introduced and analyzed for usability and suitability for use in entry level computer science classes.  ...  Version control systems (VCS), such as Subversion and Git, are pervasive in industry; they are invaluable tools for collaborative development that allow software engineers to track changes, monitor issues  ...  Git in Education Version control is a topic that is increasingly being introduced in computer science curricula.  ...

Teaching operating systems using android

Jeremy Andrus, Jason Nieh
2012 Proceedings of the 43rd ACM technical symposium on Computer Science Education - SIGCSE '12  
We also introduce an Android virtual laboratory based on virtual appliances, distributed version control, and live demonstrations which gives students hands-on Android experience, with minimal computing  ...  Although this was our first time teaching the course using Android, over 80% of students surveyed enjoyed using Android and the majority of students preferred Android to traditional desktop development  ...  To manage homework project preparation, distribution, submission and grading, we use the Git distributed version control system, already used by Android and Linux for source code version control.  ...

A plagiarism detection system

John L. Donaldson, Ann-Marie Lancaster, Paula H. Sposato
1981 Proceedings of the twelfth SIGCSE technical symposium on Computer science education - SIGCSE '81  
The problem of plagiarism in programming assignments by students in computer science courses has caused considerable concern among both faculty and students.  ...  In this paper we describe a plagiarism detection system which was recently implemented in our department. This system is being used to detect similarities in student programs.  ...  In the following section, we describe the algorithms used in our detection system. The system is designed to accept the source code version of each student assignment from a file.  ...
