Title DYNAMIX: an Operating System Teaching Assistant
Abstract Our experience shows that students have difficulty understanding how operating systems work. A theoretical study of the main functions of an operating system does not give students a feel for how these functional components interact to provide a service to the user. Some way is needed to help teach the theoretical material more effectively. We have chosen a simple graphical technique to develop DYNAMIX, a tool that displays the internals of a popular operating system and demonstrates the interaction among its functional components. In this paper we describe the development of DYNAMIX and show how it can be used in the classroom.
