Excellent information here but for me, i'm looking for 'quick and dirty' simulations or animations that use the written content in audio or caption form for ease of use, etc.

Not really a simulation, but gives a clear description about how the CSMA/CD
technology works with both text descriptions and pictures. May be too math
oriented for some CIS or MIS students.

This site is very simple, straight forward and nothing but the facts. It gives a great explaination of CSMA/CD, but it isn't very exciting. There is alot of information on each page that could be easier to understand if it were broken up into smaller sections. It could also use more graphics.

This site is to detail for me to understand completely. For some in the field
it would be useful information on data communication.

This site would be useful to someone inexperienced in the data communications.
I does offer some nice links to get some in depth information on these concepts,
and the layout is easy to follow and not overwhelming.
