New Operating Systems Units (Windows 7, Linux....)

We are in the process of finalising three new HN Units on Configuring, Troubleshooting and Managing Desktop Operating Systems which are listed below.  The Units were written with Windows 7 in mind, however, the Outcomes in each of the Units have been written in a vendor-independent manner.  There is no restriction placed on the operating system to be used and centres are free to choose any operating system of their choice.
  1. Configuring a Desktop Operating System (2 Credits at SCQF Level 7)
  2. Troubleshooting a Desktop Operating System (2 Credits at SCQF Level 7)
  3. Managing a Desktop Operating System Deployment (2 Credits at SCQF Level 8)
Each of the above Units may assist candidates to prepare for Microsoft Certifications (70-680 TS: Windows 7 Configuring, 70-685 Pro: Windows 7 Enterprise Desktop Support Technician, 70-686 Pro: Windows 7 Enterprise Desktop Administrator).

We aim to have the Units finalised , coded and available to centres by 1st April 2011 at the latest.  These will be added automatically to the HNC/D group awards as optional units.

    Nice to see vendor neutrality :)

  2. A very useful development.

  3. The price for fully managed dedicated servers may cost a bit more than other dedicated servers but more often than not the pros out weigh the cons. Many of them come with website and security monitoring, 24/7 technical help, and more. This can be great for those businesses that have documents on their website that should not be viewed by the public. You will be protected from outsiders who could rip you off or destroy your company by accessing your private data.
