Register for Stanford Univeristy Free Online Computer Networking Course

Free Online Course Title: An Introduction to Computer Networks

Start Date: October 8, 2012

About the Course

This is an introductory course on computer networking, specifically the Internet. It focuses on explaining how the Internet works, ranging from how bits are modulated on wires and in wireless to application-level protocols like BitTorrent and HTTP. It also explains the principles of how to design networks and network protocols. Students gain experience reading and understanding RFCs (Internet protocol specifications) as statements of what a system should do. The course grounds many of the concepts in current practice and recent developments, such as net neutrality and DNS security.
You will be awarded a signed certificate from Stanford University after successful completion of the course. Though this online course gets you zero credits, the certificate will help you finding your future endeavors. Watch the following video from course instructors.

In 2008 he received an NSF CAREER award and a Microsoft Research New Faculty Fellowship. He researches the design and implementation of networked systems, including operating systems and protocols for embedded wireless devices, wireless mesh protocols, network infrastructure for virtual worlds, and energy efficient computing. The results of his research, including the TinyOS operating system, nesC language, Trickle algorithm, and the collection tree protocol (CTP), have been adopted by tens of thousands of users and researchers worldwide. He is a co-founder and the President of Kumu Networks. He really likes excellent engineering and has a self-destructive aversion to low-hanging fruit.


Students need an introductory course in probability, a strong understanding of bits and bytes, and knowledge of how computers lay out data in memory.

computer networking is a main part of IT also it plays an important task in the
global village for globalization reason. It seems that, computer science or IT

With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright
infringement? My site has a lot of completely unique content I've either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd
truly appreciate it.

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my
iphone and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she
can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she
has 83 views. I know this is entirely off
topic but I had to share it with someone!

wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?
I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having difficulty
finding one? Thanks a lot!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any
widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

Hiya. Sorry to hassle you but I happened to run across your blog
and noticed you happen to be using the exact same theme as me.
The only problem is on my blog, I'm unable to get the page layout looking like yours. Would you mind e-mailing me at: so I can get this figured out. By the way I've bookmarked your web-site: http://www. and will be visiting often.

Many thanks!

I'm not sure exactly why but this web site is loading extremely
slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end?

I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
