We assume a rudimentary understanding of probability (such as the likelihood of an event) and computer system organization (such as binary representations and arithmetic). You should be comfortable with simple calculations and manipulations using scientific notation. We teach the course at the upper-undergraduate level. To do the optional, hands-on exercises you should be comfortable with installing systems software and running command-line programs.
There is an optional textbook: Computer Networks (5th Edition, either U.S. or International version), by Tanenbaum and Wetherall. We recommend (but do not require) the text if you are serious about mastering the material, as it provides accompanying explanations in greater detail and more depth, as well as extra topics and a reference.
The course consists of two to three hours of video lectures per week, presented in short segments. For those seeking to pass the course, there will be regular, required homeworks of textbook-style problems and optional hands-on exercises to cover the basics of the material. The course has a midterm and final exam.
Will I get a Statement of Accomplishment after completing this class?
Yes. Students who pass the course will receive a Statement of Accomplishment signed by the instructors.
What resources will I need for this class?
You'll need a computer on which you can install and run programs if you would like to do the optional, hands-on experiments.
What is the coolest thing I'll learn if I take this class?
How the Internet really works, of course, so that you can understand how it may change in the future!
