Description & features

This course teaches the fundamentals of networking. It covers how devices communicate on a network, network addressing and network services, how to build a home network and configure basic security, the basics of configuring Cisco devices, and testing and troubleshooting network problems. 
The course has many features to help students understand these concepts:
•    The course is comprised of 20 modules. Each module is comprised of topics.
•    Modules emphasize critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and the practical application of skills.
•    Each module contains practice and assessment activities such as a Check Your Understanding activity, a lab, or an activity using our network simulation tool, called Cisco® Packet Tracer. These topic-level activities provide feedback and are designed to indicate a learner’s mastery of the skills needed for the course. 
Learners can ensure their level of understanding well before taking a graded quiz or exam
•    The language used to describe these concepts is designed to be easily understood by learners at a high school level. 
•    Assessments and practice activities are focused on specific competencies to increase retention and provide flexibility in the learning path.
•    Multimedia learning tools, including videos, and quizzes, address a variety of learning styles and help stimulate learning and promote increased knowledge retention.
•    Labs and Cisco® Packet Tracer simulation-based learning activities help students develop critical thinking and complex problem-solving skills. 
•    Innovative assessments provide immediate feedback to support the evaluation of knowledge and acquired skills.
•    Technical concepts are explained using language that works well for learners at an introductory level, and embedded interactive activities break up reading of the content and reinforce understanding.
•    The curriculum encourages students to consider additional IT education, but also emphasizes applied skills and hands-on experience.
•    Cisco® Packet Tracer activities are designed for use with the latest version of Packet Tracer.
