PACKET tracing: a new paradigm for teaching computer network courses Conference Paper uri icon


  • Networking is a complex and evolving topic central to today's computing environment. The most important example of this technology is the Internet, which has become a staple of modern society. We present a method for combining principles and practices in the classroom, reinforcing the student's knowledge of fundamentals while providing useful skills. Students are being exposed to the Internet early in their academic careers. Students in a principles only networking course may have trouble connecting their classroom theory with their own network experiences.
