Practical learning about computer networking
The Open University Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) is pleased to announce a collaboration with the Ufi Charitable Trust to make available introductory practical computer networking skills training. The resource will service the needs of vocational learners (Further Education and Apprenticeship levels), educators, and industry.
Relevant concepts and skills taught include:
Layer models of networks
IP addresses, subnet masks and routing protocols
Diagnosing and locating network malfunctions
The training also will be accessible to novice learners considering technical qualifications and employment related to computer networking.
PT Anywhere is the underlying technology the project uses to teach networking concepts. The platform offers a network simulation environment via a web interface that can be accessed from any browser or as a widget inside an interactive eBook. PT Anywhere is based on the Packet Tracer network simulator for Windows and Linux developed by the Cisco Networking Academy.
On completion of the project, the training will be available through the University’s OpenLearn and award winning OpenSTEM Laboratory platforms.
