BASIC NETWORK TECHNOLOGY

Module 1 – SLP

 

BASIC NETWORK TECHNOLOGY, STRUCTURE, AND PROTOCOLS

The purpose of the Session Long Project in Trident University classes is to give you the opportunity to explore the applicability of the Module to your own life, work, and place in space and time, and to experiment with the Module to see how the otherwise academically rigorous presentation of a topic may, with more or less work and/or trauma, become “up close and personal.” This is done in a number of different ways—sometimes cumulative papers, sometimes practical hands-on experimentation with a tool of some sort, sometimes reflections on a place of work or life. The common thread is personal application, aimed at demonstrating a cumulative knowledge and understanding of the course’s material.

In this course, the Project assignments for each Module will involve your experimenting with networking tutorials of various forms—some downloads (if possible – see below), some online demos. Each Module, your SLP assignment will consist of filling out a report on your “adventures in software”, summarizing what you looked at and offering to the degree possible some critical evaluation of it; you’ll also be invited to reflect on your cumulative software experiences.

For this module, your task is to watch the youtube video tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmwvWlLTgXE

from LinkSys Corp. This is a pretty simple and basic but it will get you started and bring you up to speed quickly.

Also use this tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZaRWk0q8wnU.

The more of the tutorial you can work through, the better; however, your grade is primarily dependent on how you approach the task and how much learning energy you put into it rather than specific output from the tutorial.

Once you have completed your exploration of the tutorial, to finish the project for this module you are to prepare a 2- to 3-page report covering the following topics:

  • what the tutorial teaches
  • how good a job the tutorial does (include any of your personal experiences with it that might be relevant)
  • who might find the tutorial useful
  • how do you safeguard you home network?

Your assignment will be graded according to the MSITM SLP Grading Rubric, which aligns with the following expectations. (To see the rubric, go to Assessments>Rubrics. Click the arrow next to the rubric name and choose Preview.)

Module 2 – SLP

NETWORK SECURITY MANAGEMENT ISSUES

You’ll recall that for the SLP assignment for this course, we are conducting assessments of database programs and demonstrations available online. For this module, your task is to review and try the following:

A Guide to Networking: http://www.pcworld.com/article/196049/the_ultimate_guide_to_home_networking.html

Training material: Cisco CCIE Routing & Switching :: PfR vSeminar :: Part 1, INE Training. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2h3nTKpXacY

This is an interesting example of a tutorial focused on a particular area of networking. The more of the tutorial you can work through, the better; however, your grade is primarily dependent on how you approach the task and how much learning energy you put into it rather than specific output from the tutorial.

Once you have completed your exploration of the tutorial, to finish the project for this module you are to prepare a 2- to 3-page report covering the following topics:

  • what the tutorial teaches
  • how good a job the tutorial does (include any of your personal experiences with it that might be relevant)
  • who might find the tutorial useful
  • any other aspect of the tutorial that you think a reader might find useful
