Introduction to Networking explains computer networking basics in terms that you can easily understand, using concepts common to everyday, non-computing experience. A brief introduction to networking history provides context, explaining how networks have become so important to businesses and individuals. The course emphasizes networking fundamentals, explaining the software and hardware that makes networking possible. The course stresses understanding how and why networks work, rather than focusing on memorization of terms or numbers.
Upon completion of the course, you will be capable of performing basic computer networking tasks, such as DSL connectivity, configuring connections to an Internet Service Provider, and creating a private network. This course will give you the foundation you need to begin training for CCNA Certification or employment in a computer networking career.
A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
Have you ever heard someone refer to a computer as a server? Maybe you've heard someone talk about connecting computers in a peer-to-peer environment. Understanding the difference between client/server and peer-to-peer networks really helps you learn about computers and networking. So in today's lesson, you'll learn how to tell the difference between client/server and peer-to-peer networks, and when to use one instead of the other.

Excellent course content, good analogies and examples. Explained in an easily understood manner. Content was perfect for an introductory course.
Excellent course. Lots of information was provided, however it was a very easy-to-follow format and it was kept interesting.
Excellent use of illustrations as a means of clarifying initially difficult concepts. Very clear writing style. I also enjoyed the humor. Overall, an excellent course.
Finally, someone who completely understands his subject and is capable of conveying that understanding to others. This course met the criteria for effective teaching: Explain clearly, Illustrate and show practical application. I will be back for more!!!
I especially liked the instructor's writing style and analogies. I feel the course taught me what it promised.
I really, really enjoyed this class and I am a recent Information Systems graduate. There needs to be more instructors like David Iseminger. He is very user friendly. I will take his next course.
I think course was very informative organized very well and the concepts built on each other to help with understanding the topics. I really enjoyed the course and plan to take additional courses in the future.
I thought the presentation of the material by the instructer was done in a way that made it easy to understand the various complex issues in this course.
I wanted to learn more about a complex and somewhat abstract subject ie networks and networking. I was pleased that the writing style kept my interest and introduced complex subjects in a matter of fact style. I don't think I would have gotten as much out of just reading a book on the subject. Certainly has proven helpful to me in my day to day dealings with computer networks and the internet thank you.
