Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this class because it is a IT program introduction class that teaches the terminology and concepts of Networking. In order to be successful in the IT field, the terminology and concepts have to be understood and memorized. This course teaches the protocols, different networking topology and models, data communication between devices, etc. that are required for success in the IT field.
This course focuses on teaching the terminology and concepts behind computer networking: -Understanding different network models (peer-to-peer v.s. client-server). -Understanding different network infrastructures used in businesses (topology and other concepts). -Understanding network and data communication protocols (OSI model, TP/IP, etc.). -Understanding technology used in modern networks.
Hours per week:
Advice for students:
The hardest part of the course is memorizing the terminology and concepts. Review all the terminology and concepts every week and use them in your discussions and papers to be successful in this course. If you already have background in either the IT field or technology, then the course will be very easy. If not, then it recommended to take the optional class at Capella University that introduces you to the basics of technology before this class.
