Class Objectives: At the end of this class students will have a firm understanding of how the internet works, what happens in the cloud, and how information travels from point A to point B in a network.
Course Design: Each class will consist of a lecture and group discussion and as the semester progresses hands on labs will be done during class.
Class Description: The content of this class will be based on the Cisco CCENT Certification which is the entry level certification for the field of internetworking. Each class will start with a group discussion which will lead into the lecture part of the class. As the semester progresses labs may be done during the entire class time to give student a very good understanding of the concepts presented to them.

Grades: The grade will be a mix of hands on labs, attendance, and group discussions/questions.
