Marist College's Enterprise Computing MOOC Running on Sakai 2.9
On Monday, July 8, 2013 Marist College
will launch our first MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), titled Introduction
to Enterprise Computing, using the Sakai CLE 2.9 with a slimmed down tool
set that includes Lesson Builder. The MOOC has been developed by
our Institute for Data Center Professionals which is part of our School
of Computer Science and Mathematics and is the first in a series of MOOCs
we will be experimenting with over the coming academic year.
Below is more information on the MOOC
and how to register. Please feel free to distribute this to others
as it is open to the public (and free).
Introduction to Enterprise Computing
This course provides an introduction
to concepts of Enterprise Computing. In particular, it focuses on
the role of the System z hardware and its primary operating system z/OS
in an Enterprise Computing environment. The introductory topic provides
an overview of Enterprise Computing in general. This is followed with an
introduction to the System z enterprise server hardware and its operating
system, z/OS. Enterprise computing involves many different types of workloads;
for example, transaction processing, business intelligence, end user interactive
computing, web serving, data serving, batch, and many others. This short
course will provide an overview of two very important Enterprise Computing
workloads: end user interactive computing (TSO/ISPF and USS) and batch
processing and their related technologies.
