Abstract

Operating system is one of the largest pieces of software, which makes its understanding quite intimidating to students. This paper reports our experiences of complementing the traditional Unix-based operating system curriculum with Windows alternative. Our goals are two-fold: First, we aim at making the learning of operating system concepts more relevant to students, by using Windows which is a dominant operating system choice among students, Second, we aim at making the course more diverse, by presenting alternative design examples to Unix-based instructional materials such that students can learn from comparing and contrasting. In this poster, we will present available educational resources and our contributions to them.
