to simplify complicated material to make it comprehensible and understandable,
he answers questions and makes you feel that no question is out of bounds or
silly or out of place, is extremely warm and friendly, makes one feel very
welcome in his class, writes his lessons with clarity and coherence, using very
familiar analogies that gives one a clear picture of complex material (I bet
there is a poet in him). His class was over much too fast, it was so enjoyable

Networking is the method by which two or more computing devices can
be linked together for the purpose of sharing data. Networks are
developed by mixing computer hardware and computer software.
Networking can help you to reorganize the office, share music files
and printers. The Networking course will provide you tips and give a
comprehensive understanding of the tools and techniques which will
get you started with setting up a network. There are two kinds of
network available; wired networks which use Ethernet (CAT-5) cables
to connect to networked components and wireless networks which use
Wi-Fi which is a wireless communication standard.
The ExpertRating Networking Certification will help you easily set
up a network at home, in the office or in schools.
Have you ever
wondered how networks started? You're surrounded
by networks, whether they're computer networks,
networks of roads, or the network of telephones
that allow you to communicate every day. In this
first lesson, you'll learn how networks have
evolved over the last hundred years. You'll also
find out why every additional device that
connects to a network greatly increases the
value of the network. By the time you've
completed this lesson, you'll have a framework
of knowledge that will take you through the rest
of the course.
Friday - Lesson 02
In this lesson,
you'll jump right into networks and networking,
and learn how they work. You'll use examples
from your everyday experience. You'll learn how
to tell the difference between a network and
networking, and realize that computer networks
are a lot like freeway networks. You'll never
look at an interstate the same way again! You'll
also find out why shipping your data from one
computer to the next is a lot like sending your
distant uncle a new coffee mug for his birthday.
Believe it or not, freeways and shipped gifts
have a direct correlation to how networks and
Wednesday - Lesson 03
Have you ever heard
someone refer to a computer as a server? Maybe
you've heard someone talk about connecting
computers in a peer-to-peer environment.
Understanding the difference between
client/server and peer-to-peer networks really
helps you learn about computers and networking.
So in this lesson, you'll learn how to tell the
difference between client/server and
peer-to-peer networks, and when to use one
instead of the other.
Friday - Lesson 04
Many people have
heard of Ethernet, but what does that mean
exactly? In this lesson, you'll learn all about
Ethernet, and a whole lot more. Here you'll find
out the difference between a star topology and a
bus topology, and the advantages of each. Is
Ethernet or Token Ring the best modern network
technology, and why? In this lesson, you'll get
those answers and many more!
Wednesday - Lesson 05-
This lesson will
explore how routers operate, and you'll see why
routers operate a lot like how a receptionist in
a growing company handles telephone calls. This
lesson will build on information you learned in
previous lessons, then you'll find out how a
single interconnected network (the Internet) can
actually span the entire globe. A global network
is an amazing feat, accomplished by
interconnecting network segments and routing
data! When you've completed this lesson, you'll
understand how routing helps data to cross the
city, state, or an entire ocean.
Friday - Lesson 06
communicate, they speak a language—such as
English—to exchange information. Computers
communicate similarly over a network, but
instead of speaking a language, they use
something called a protocol. Protocols are
similar to languages, and in this lesson, you'll
learn about the protocols used in networking.
You'll also learn which protocol has emerged as
the dominant computer protocol, and why!
Wednesday - Lesson 07
In this lesson,
you'll learn how the networking protocol TCP/IP
operates. TCP/IP is a collection of protocols,
and in this lesson you'll learn how TCP/IP
divides its tasks. This lesson will go over how
TCP/IP uses addresses to direct data to its
rightful owner—it's similar to how people use
Friday - Lesson 08
Have you ever
wondered how your computer converts a World Wide
Web address into a Web site that appears on your
screen? In this lesson, you'll learn how the
Domain Name System (DNS) translates names into
numeric addresses, and how all that allows your
favorite Web site, e-mail, or file to appear on
your computer screen. You'll also learn how the
entire computer industry comes to a consensus
about how the Internet should work.
Wednesday - Lesson 09
This lesson will
take a look at Wide Area Networks (WANs) and how
they compare to Local Area Networks (LANs).
You'll learn all about how data gets sent over
long distances, and how the Internet changed
expensive, long-distance network connections.
You'll also learn how Point-to-Point Tunneling
Protocol (PPTP) secures those Internet
connections from prying eyes.
Friday - Lesson 10
If you connect to
the Internet, you use remote access. This lesson
will explore the traditional means of connecting
to remote LANs, and talk about exactly how
dial-up Internet access works. Then this lesson
will discuss modern means by which many people
connect to the Internet, including DSL and cable
Wednesday - Lesson 11
In this lesson,
you'll apply many of the concepts you've learned
so far in this course. This lesson will walk
through the process of making an Internet
connection, and you'll see the step-by-step
process of creating a dial-up connection. Each
step of the way, you'll come to understand
what's going on behind the scenes. From there,
this lesson will jump to connecting to the
Internet using broadband connections, such as
DSL or cable modems.
Friday - Lesson 12
This final lesson will tie all the previous lessons
together, clarifying how new information about networks and
networking can be quickly understood. You'll learn three
categories into which networking knowledge can be placed,
and see examples to apply your newfound network categories.
By the end of this lesson, your understanding of networking
will be solid as a rock, and you'll be well-prepared for a
lifetime of continued learning about networking!
