“Computer Knowledge Virus Tutorial”
Computer Knowledge Virus Tutorial
Dec 9, 2001
- This material is a tutorial on computer viruses with explicit examples of viruses, how they can affect a computer, how to identify the virus interaction on a computer, and how to avoid/cleanup a virus infection.
- Type of Material:
- Technical Requirements:
- Students need an Internet connection with Adobe Acrobat reader. The tutorial can be downloaded and executed locally using the Acrobat reader.
- Identify Major Learning Goals:
- The learning goal is to enable the students to learn how to identify a virus infection and get rid of the virus from their computer.
- Target Student Population:
- The target population is high school or college students and anyone else interested in the history, evolution, and removal of computer viruses.
- Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
- A general knowledge about computers is a prerequisite for understanding this material.
- This module is very well done. I like the navigational tools, so a student can easily go to each topic and subtopic, using pull-down menus. The information is accurate and timely. The summary at the end of each chapter was very useful.
- Exercises related to the tutorial would be great. The tutorial could be improved by providing some interactivity. Review questions at the end of each chapter would be useful.
- It would be relatively easy to adapt this tutorial to an academic assignment. It has much useful information about a topic that is in the news.
- Because this was not developed for an academic environment, learning objectives and prerequisite knowledge are not clearly identified.
- The buttons for navigation through the topics are good. There are multiple ways to navigate through this site, which allows the site to be used both as a tutorial and as a reference.Very visually appealing.
- The only interactivity in this module is clicking to go to another topic. More interaction could keep the student?s interest.
