Due to a teacher shortage I will have a class of "IT-Systems & Devices" students in a couple of weeks. The class should be group projects of 3 students in which they will have to do research (and interviews with me) to asses what the end goal of the project is and how they can get there.

And of course they will need to build that end goal. My personal background is in software development so I sadly don't know any projects they could do.

Does anyone know some possible assignments or a site where I could find some? Because the teacher who used to do this left none behind.

Subjects are in the area of:

  • Hardware setup/maintenance (like setting up laptops/servers with specific software or integrating security camera's or sensors in to a network.)
  • Networking(setting up a network including security and maintaining that network (Or things like a web/database server)

The difficulty is aimed at freshman college it-students.

    $\begingroup$ Since they are freshmen, can you ask current sophomores or juniors who took the class in the past what was done? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @BenI. I actually did, but my predecessor kinda neglected the course entirely... the assignments he had were fully theoretical and didn't come close to what was promised to the students. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ What kind of hardware can the school provide for the students to work with? That may be the biggest factor because if the answer is "none" or "we have all these workstations but you can't change anything" then it becomes all "virtual". $\endgroup$ Feb 3, 2022 at 20:37
  • $\begingroup$ @manassehkatz-Moving2Codidact don't have any insight in to the budget, but a few hundred euro's should be possible. $\endgroup$
