Illustrating networking concepts with wireless handheld devices
ACM SIGCSE Bulletin
Mathematics and Computer Science
We are developing innovative new laboratory materials that give students a hands-on introduction to both traditional and wireless networking concepts. Our labs are designed around the Cybiko, a powerful multi-functional wireless handheld computer that sells for less than $50. The materials can be used to augment existing networking courses or as the core of a new upper-level course. This paper describes the labs completed to date, our plans for the future, and presents the results of a comparative study using the labs to demonstrate routing algorithms.
