METHODS OF INSTRUCTION

Methods of instruction include o
nline curriculum, lectures, class discussions, e
-
Labs (online
simulations) and hands
-
on
networking lab activities.

SUPPLEMENTAL ASSIGNMENTS

Hands
-

will permit students

to work wit
h materials and equipments in
various
exercises, such as building network cables or punching down cross
-
connects. Students will
document these activities in an Engineering Journal and Workbook.

GRADING


Grading should be comprised of a combination of onlin
e
tests

at the end of each module,
o
nline mid
-
term

and final examination, and successful completion of lab
assignments.
