Details of Learning Activities
In this unit you will learn industry recognized skills in designing, implementing and managing Local Area Network (LAN), Wide area Network. The learning units will emphasis on LAN monitoring and troubleshooting techniques. After the successful completion of this unit, the learner is expected to administer and support Local Area Networks.
Classroom tutorial activities:
Lectures: to introduce the important concepts.
• Attending lectures will make it much easier for you to understand the central concepts of the course
• You will feel more comfortable and you will learn more if you read the relevant material before you attend the lectures
Tutorials: to enable you to ask questions and to clarify unresolved issues
• Review the material and prepare your questions before you come to class
• There will be an overview of course content with a focus on the material students find difficult
• If something is unclear or if you find yourself falling behind please ask for help immediately
• You may be given worksheets to complete during the tutorial
Practical exercises: to give you the hands on experience of implementing and troubleshooting networks
• In general there will be one practical exercise per week
• You will perform the exercise and write it up in a lab journal
• The lab journal will be a bound exercise book
o Loose leaf binders will not be accepted
• The write up will be a record of your actions as they are performed and your corresponding observations
• The write up must be performed in the lab as you perform the practical exercise, not at a later date
o Write ups not in the lab journal will not be marked
o Write ups which are not done concurrently with the performance of the practical exercise will not be marked
• In general the detail of the write up must be sufficient for you to be able to comfortably perform the practical exercise a year or more later directly from the lab journal
• Any difficult or tricky points should be especially noted in the lab journal for future reference
• Responses to worksheets for practical exercises must be written up in the lab journal
• The neatness, completeness and the presentation of the lab journal must be of a quality such that you would be prepared to show it to a future employer as an example of your work
