Gamify with Virtual PC

Virtualisation is the act of creating a virtual version of computer hardware, storage devices and computer network resources. It is part of the foundation for cloud computing. Students will learn how to install an Operating System (OS) into a virtual machine software, explore virtual hardware and create fun games with easy-to-use coding tools in virtual machine (VM). The module hence aims to equip students with deeper understanding on IT concepts such as real-world cloud gaming and virtualisation, and other essential IT skills sets for the Infocomm Technology Sector through the activities.
