The goal of this course is to introduce students to fundamental networking concepts and technologies. These online course materials will assist students in developing the skills necessary to plan and implement small networks across a range of applications.
This computer-based learning environment is an important part of the overall course experience for students and instructors in the Networking Academy. These online course materials are designed to be used along with several other instructional tools and activities.
- Class presentation
- discussion, and practice with your instructor.
- Hands-on labs that use networking equipment within the Networking Academy classroom.
- Online scored assessments and a matching grade book.
- Packet Tracer simulation tool.
As the course title states, the focus is on learning the fundamentals of networking. In this course, you will learn both the practical and conceptual skills that build the foundation for understanding basic networking. First, students will examine human versus network communication and see the parallels between them. Next, students will be introduced to the two major models used to plan and implement networks: O S I and TCP/IP. Students will gain an understanding of the "layered" approach to networks and examine the O S I and TCP/IP layers in detail to understand their functions and services. Students will become familiar with the various network devices, network addressing schemes and, finally, the types of media used to carry data across the network.
