3. CONTENT DESCRIPTION

Module 1: Introduction to Cloud Computing (4 hours)

In this module, we will introduce the concept of cloud computing and the economical foundations that make cloud computing make sense. Some fundamental concepts including software defined architectures and cloud services are introduced. 

As a practice, the following project will be carried out:  A study to determine how IT can be of strategic assistance using cloud computing.

 

Module 2: Virtualization (8 hours)

In this module we will study the concept of virtualization and related terms. The different virtualization solutions and the role they play in cloud computing. The infrastructure will be compared as a service offered by the big three: Google, Amazon and Microsoft.

As a practice, two projects will be carried out:

  • Creation of a virtual machine with VirtualBox (export it to different formats).
  • The start-up of a low-level cloud computing service or IaaS (infrastructure as a service). The platforms chosen are OpenStack and AWS (Amazon Web Services).

 

Module 3: PaaS and cloud services (16 hours)

 The concept of Platform as a Service will be studied. Different services will be studied such as Google Cloud IoT Core and Google Data Studio (Google Analytics Suite tool to create reports).

Two projects are proposed:

  • Practical application of IoT with Cloud IoT Core.
  • Creation and deployment of an application using PaaS.

 

Module 4: Storage (4 hours)

This module will present cloud file systems as HDFS, Ceph and Google Cloud Storage.

Proposed project: Cloud data storage.

 

 

4. COURSE DESCRIPTION AND TEACHING METHODOLOGY

Large group classes

In the large group classes, a set of theoretical activities (lectures on theoretical-practical contents) are developed using the following methodologies: lectures and theory exposition and general examples. In addition to the exposition of the theoretical contents of the subject, the ability to collect and interpret data and handle complex concepts within the Information and Communication Technologies applied to the connected Industry will be developed, in order to make judgments that involve reflection on ethical and social issues.

The student must follow the teacher's presentation with the material given for this purpose, either notes or slide presentation, which must be completed with their own notes and with the subsequent revision of the basic and / or recommended bibliography.

The attendance, as well as the active participation, either to raise doubts or to respond to the requirements or questions of the teacher, will be positively evaluated in its corresponding factor.

The student's autonomous work should focus on reviewing the concepts and theoretical aspects seen in the class, carrying out exercises, as well as studying them with the material provided by the teacher, student's notes and bibliography.

 

Small group classes

In the small group classes, a set of practical activities are developed, following a project-based learning methodology.

The design and implementation of the tasks marked by the different practical projects will be carried out. The objective will be to apply research tools in the field of connected Industry

In addition, work will be encouraged in a collaborative and cooperative environment and participation in teams, as well as mixing with the communication of results, with special emphasis on the need for continuous training of activities related to Information Technology and Communication applied to the Industry connected throughout his professional life independently.

The attendance, as well as the active participation, either to raise doubts or to respond to the requirements or questions of the teacher, will be positively evaluated in its corresponding factor.

Regarding the autonomous work, this will focus on the preparation of the documentation to be delivered of each practice, as well as on completing the work started in the laboratory and that could not be completed in the corresponding session.

 

Individual activities using eLearning management system

Different individual activities will be developed in the virtual teaching platform. The main goal is that students know how to apply the knowledge acquired and their ability to solve problems in new or unfamiliar environments.

Students with special educational needs should contact the Student Attention Service (Servicio de Atención y Ayudas al Estudiante) in order to receive the appropriate academic support

5. ASSESSMENT METHODOLOGY

The evaluation process consists of:

  • The evaluation of the tasks defined in the Teaching Guide during the Teaching period.
  • A final Written Exam during the Examination period.

Written Exam

The students have to make a Written Exam that assesses the theoretical and operating aspects of the subject .This final evaluation is made to assess the extent to which the studentshaveacquired all the competences and learning outcomes established for those aspects.

Final assessment

The students will pass the subject through this evaluation method by getting a mark higher or equal than 5.0 out of 10 in the overall result (continuous evaluation and written exam).The final exam is weighted in the following way:

  • Attendance and participation.
  • Theoretical concepts and Exercises, problems and study cases.
  • Laboratory and computer practical work (proyects)
