- Understand, configure, verify, and troubleshoot Routing Technologies (Inter-VLAN, OSPF, EIGRP over IPv4 and IPv6)
- Understand, configure, verify, and troubleshoot WAN Technologies (PPP, MLPPP, PPoE, GRE tunnel, access connectivity such as MPLS, WAN topologies, eBGP)
- Understand, describe, configure, verify, and troubleshoot Infrastructure Services (HSRP, cloud resources, QoS, ACL for IPv4 and IPv6)
- Understand, describe, configure, verify, and troubleshoot Infrastructure Maintenance technologies (SNMP, IP SLA, local SPAN, AAA with TACACS+/RADIUS, network programmability)
Learning Model Architecture
This course follows a weekly cycle of Prepare, Teach One Another, and Ponder and Prove activities.
You will prepare by setting goals and scheduling your time wisely. This will help you to complete assignments, stay on task, and perform valuable work in the future. You will have little predefined structure and will be responsible for thinking ahead and establishing your own productive schedule.
Ponder and Prove
You will demonstrate your work each week by completing exploration activities, quizzes, and exams.
CIT 240 Networking
You will be using TestOut Routing and Switching Pro. Access to this resource is available in the Lesson Overviews starting in Lesson 2.
Assigned topics are given for each activity. Students must explain what they have learned by conducting independent research, synthesizing ideas from several sources, and posting their thoughts in their own words.
The quizzes are closed book. Do not use any notes, textbook, the Internet, or any other outside resource. This is on your honor. These usually cover the chapters covered that week but do assume an understanding of previous materials. Quizzes are timed and can only be taken once.
The exams are closed book. Do not use any notes, textbook, the Internet, or any other outside resource. This is on your honor. These are comprehensive tests that cover everything studied up to that point. Exams are timed and can only be taken once.
Your overall grade will be calculated according to the following scale:
|Letter Grade||Percentage Range|
|A-||90 - 92%|
|B+||87 - 89%|
|B||83 - 86%|

|D+||67 - 69%|
|D||63 - 66%|
|D-||60 - 62%|
|F||59% and below|
|Network Design Paper||10%|
