Find out how to use the exercise files and tutorials in IT Administrator's Guide to OS X El Capitan.
- If you're like me, you spend a lot of time wondering about the why question. Some of favorite books and documentaries explore why we ended up where we are today, or why we do the things we do. I'm especially interested in why systems function the way they do. From plants deriving energy from light, to human-designed systems like computers and networks, and why they do what they do. As an IT administrator, you have to see the world for what it is with an understanding of not only how things function, but why the history behind those functions guides where we are today.
Once you understand the why, you can understand what trouble signs look like, and how to prevent or correct them. This course is for you, the IT administrator, because in your work, managing Macintosh computers, you encounter problems that must be resolved while doing no harm to the people who use that technology. To fix problems, make systems function efficiently, and protect user data, you must understand how the system you administer works.
That understanding enables you to do your job and be the best administrator you can be. So, sit back and relax. This entire course is designed to quickly and efficiently pass on the mission critical information that will be your foundation as an IT administrator of Macintosh computers running El Capitan.
