By the end of this course you’ll be able to: ● utilize best practices for choosing hardware, vendors, and services for your organization ● understand how the most common infrastructure services that keep an organization running work, and how to manage infrastructure servers ● understand how to make the most of the cloud for your organization ● manage an organization’s computers and users using the directory services, Active Directory, and OpenLDAP ● choose and manage the tools that your organization will use ● backup your organization’s data and know how to recover your IT infrastructure in the case of a disaster ● utilize systems administration knowledge to plan and improve processes for IT environments...

The best course so far. I feel like this course actually showed us things we would be doing day to day in the workplace. It's nice to problem solve since that will probably be a big chunk of the job.

This chapter is very interesting since describes a lot of the things that we have at the office running on the background but we never understood well. The material is well put together, congrats.

Some of the information was out of order. I think the structure of this course (especially week 4) should be revisited and streamlined

A lot of information to absorb and take in but going over it more than a few times for understanding the infrastructure was good.

The course was good & informative, but would have been a lot easier to learn with more use of Qwiklabs like in previous courses.

Good information given, however Qwiklabs often didn't work properly and left me unable to fully practice what I was learning.

Would like to more labs and less explaining. Or maybe more labs, with explanation as you go along.

The large number of supplemental readings left it unclear what was important for the assessments.

This one was a bit harder to replicate on my machine which made learning a little more difficult.

Some of the labs just don't work correctly. Very annoying and a waste of my time. Disappointing.

Let down by the constant issues with the Qwiklabs environment. Aside from that issue, good.

Kind of challenging. Had to watch over and over before understanding most of the topics.

Glad to get through it, and I still feel IT illiterate, though. I'm still quite unsure.

Good course however peer graded review needs more options than a perfect score to pass

Would've liked to have seen more qwiklab implementation of Active Directory examples

The course was interesting but entirely too advanced for someone starting out.

needs to be more hands on for people like me who are really new to this field

I think this should have been a two-part module. It was difficult to follow.

Good overall course but not an in-depth course. It is for pre-Junior admins.

The labs, especially Windows based were difficult to connect to and use.
