The impact of technology and networks on our lives, culture, and society continues to increase. The very fact that you can take this course from anywhere in the world requires a technological infrastructure that was designed, engineered, and built over the past sixty years. To function in an information–centric world, we need to understand the workings of network technology. This course will open up the Internet and show you how it was created, who created it and how it works. Along the way we will meet many of the innovators who developed the Internet and Web technologies that we use today. What You Will Learn: After this course you will not take the Internet and Web for granted. You will be better informed about important technological issues currently facing society. You will realize that the Internet and Web are spaces for innovation and you will get a better understanding of how you might fit into that innovation. If you get excited about the material in this course, it is a great lead–in to taking a course in Web design, Web development, programming, or even network administration. At a minimum, you will be a much wiser network citizen.

    Very good course. Great instructor. Highly recommended. It is truly beginner level, so as one that have already studied Internet protocols (in the early 90’s) I feel that I didn’t learn many new things, but it was fantastic as a recap. The interviews with Internet pioneers were very insightful.

    Dr. Chuck is fantastic in all of his work. I was always curious about networking at larger, but I took this class specifically because of the instructor. I am glad I did. He made the content engaging, digestible, and enjoyable.

    Great course. The way Dr. Chuck approaches the course, starting from the history (a detailed view is provided), and then to the actual technology, is great. Loved the course and would recommend it to all people who want to know about the Internet, its history, working and all related aspects.

    I am a self–taught junior software developer but I got a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics. I didn’t really know anything about the technology of the Internet, so this course provided a basic knowledge of this topic.

    Wow! This is course is actually “living” history. It should be taught in schools. It really brings alive and makes real the application of maths, sciences, communication, solving problems etc….and how we got to the present, but where we going in 100 years from now.

    The course is not just taught with enthusiasm, but many of the key events are described by people who were directly involved. The course should have something new for almost anyone.
