Introduction to Internet Technology Tutorial
A few years ago, the public was introduced to the concept of an "Information Superhighway", a revolutionary way to access a wealth of information and interact with people around the globe from a home or office computer. Since that time, there has been exponential growth in the number of people obtaining connections to the global network: the number has more than doubled every year.
The backbone of this network is something called the Internet, a collection of interconnected networks all using the Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP). As more organizations and individuals get connected, it will become increasingly important to understand and take advantage of this technology. This course serves as a basic introduction to the inner workings of Internet technology, showing both how the protocols work and how they are used to create Internet applications and services. The course concludes with basic information on choosing and working with an Internet service provider, and some words of wisdom about Internet culture and standards of conduct for network participants.
One of the cornerstones of the Internet Protocol Suite is platform independence. The information in this course is applicable to all types of computer systems, including PCs, Macintoshes, and UNIX systems. No single platform is emphasized or excluded.
The Introduction to Internet Technology Tutorial serves as an excellent precursor to other Great Circle Associates courses.
Each tutorial participant will receive a comprehensive package of materials, including a full copy of the tutorial presentation and reference information.
This course provides foundational material for other Great Circle Associates tutorials. Those who wish to take other GCA tutorials but have no experience or understanding of the Internet protocols should consider taking this course first.
The course materials assume some basic user-level knowledge of computers and local-area networks.
