The Project and Portfolio VII: Information Technology course combines hands-on learning experiences with summative and formative portfolio assessments. In this course, students will extend their existing project by applying their knowledge of software-defined data centers and reflecting upon the process of creating an entire cloud-based project. Students will also validate the security of their system and plan and test strategies for disaster recovery. Students will demonstrate a complete cloud-based system and will provide a written report on their experience and how they plan to improve the design. Students will also learn how to revise a program proposal to meet a client's needs.
