Description

This subject aims to provide students with the necessary skills to configure a Network Operating System. To provide students with the necessary skills to understand the topologies and devices used in a small- to medium-sized business network.

 

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

The student will be able to manipulate  logic equations

2.

The student will understand the different Network classes, private and public.

3.

The student will be able to describe and explain the topologies and devices used in a small- to medium-sized business network.

4.

The student will be able to describe and explain how to configure a Network Operating System.

5.

The student will be able to describe and explain Network Protocols and Communications.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

Simulation-based learning activities promote the exploration of networking concepts and allow students to experiment with network behaviour. Hands-on labs help students develop critical thinking and complex problem solving skills.

Module Assessment Strategies

The module will be assessed by configuring and troubleshooting  Networks and Operating Systems throughout the module using network simulator:Packet Tracer.

The students will undertake regular assessments using network Hardware and Packet Tracer and the students will take a written exam and end of module.

Repeat Assessments

To do.
