Introduction to Networking 1a: Introduction

Introduction to Networking 1a: Introduction


What would happen if we didn’t have the internet? The internet is one example of a network, so you can only imagine why networking careers are essential. Start exploring the fundamentals of networking, learning about the different parts of a computer and hardware, network operating systems, and understanding how common network devices can be connected. You’ll get hands-on to explore different types of cables used to create networks – and even make cables in Wired Networking activities. Get started with your introduction to networking!

  • Welcome to the world of networking! While we all know what computers are and how to operate them, it makes sense to step back and look closely at the basics. Everything starts with a strong foundation. To supply that foundation, we’ll dig into the definitions and component parts that you need to know to understand computers and networking. What exactly does the computer do? What parts are responsible for the computer’s basic operation? There’s also power to consider: how it makes things run, how to harness and measure it, and how to stay safe when using it.

    What will you learn in this unit?

    • Define the computer and describe how electricity is measured
    • Describe electrical components and charge
    • Discuss number systems and data management
    • Outline specific ways to keep yourself, your electronics, and your identity safe
