10IPT: On route to a trial...

posted Jul 17, 2012, 2:33 PM by Eddie Woo
This is it - the final term of the course! A month ago, I outlined a timeline of what we would be doing in preparation for your trial exam (which is in just over a fortnight). At this stage, we are right on target - which means that during today and tomorrow's lesson, we will be creating our study notes on communications systems (the last core topic we need to cover). See the handout for our usual overview of the topic. 

To begin with, I'll be showing you a video on the History of the Internet, which is rather technical but does a great job at tying together a lot of loose threads and helping you appreciate the magnitude of what we call the internet (and that we assume will simply 'work' on a daily basis). From there, I'll leave you to begin reviewing the different concepts, asking questions and creating notes to help you study.
