Module 1 aims to acquire the necessary skills to manage Information Technology (IT) tools: assembly of a Personal Computer (PC), wireless networking, installation of programmes, and so on.
Module 2, on the other hand, aims to teach how to manage these tools in an end-to-end manner, starting from the identification of problems through to their resolution and debugging, using tools such as Linux, Domain Name Systems, Command-Line Interface and Binary Code, with a focus on the indispensable IT security aspects.

A. Knowledge and understanding of the IT world and its specificities
B. Applied knowledge and understanding of IT tools
C. Autonomy of judgement with regard to the choice of suitable tools for solving typical IT problems
D. Communication skills using the correct terminology in order to communicate properly with different stakeholders
E. Learning skills aimed at demonstrating flexibility in the use of constantly changing and updated operating environments and tools.
A. Use of advanced textbooks, knowledge of some cutting-edge topics within the subject studied. But above all, the ability to exploit the Internet and the resources made available.
B. A professional approach to work and possession of appropriate skills to devise arguments, support them and solve problems within the subject studied. Ability to collect and interpret data to make independent judgements. Flexibility in the use of different tools depending on the computer platform used.
C. Ability to communicate information, ideas, problems and solutions to specialists and non-specialists. In particular, use of the correct terminology in order to be able to communicate correctly with the different stakeholders.
D. Ability to undertake further studies with a high degree of autonomy. Ability to use what has been learned in different contexts, independently and with knowledge.
- 6 hours of recorded video lessons available on the platform.
- 2 synchronous meetings on the platform.
- Podcasts of all the above-mentioned video lessons.
- 1 course orientation forum.
- 2 thematic follow-up forums (1 per module).
- Possibility to carry out work in groups.
- 2 structured e-activities (as described in the section “in itinere assessment methods”).
Teaching materials are provided for each module: in-depth thematic studies, articles and slides by the lecturer, open access readings, online resources, reference bibliography, etc.
Material provided by the lecturer.
Access to the final examination is subject to the following 2 e-activities:
– Etivity 1 – Problem solving (Module 1)
– Etivity 2 – Problem solving (Module 2)
The assessment of learning will take the form of an oral interview on the course contents and on the final report submitted, if any. The grade (min 18, max 30 with possible honours) is determined by the level of performance for each of the following dimensions of the oral interview: mastery of contents, appropriateness of definitions and theoretical references, clarity of argument, command of specialist language.
