I scanned over the site and it is educationally significant. I has a nice
layout of all topics. It also has good pictures and diagrams to help explain
some information.

The information included was very helpful, considering I am in the process of
taking a Data Communication class. It was very simple as far as the way it
guided me through. It was easy, but very informative.

This website has a lot of information on data communications and is easy to use
but downloading is a bit slow.

Wonderful in visually showing what a analog system is as well as digital.

The information was laid out in a very easy to follow manner. The presentation
started with basics and ended with WAN technologies.

Technical Remarks:

The information is presented very logically and explained in detail. The
breakdown is very nice for students to study sections at a time. The section
tests give a great review of the information presented. The quality of
information is right in step with my Intro to Telecommunications text book.

I think that the site was layed out nicely. The site could have been a little
more up to date with new technonolgy. It did provide good information on the
one that it had.

This website gives a good introduction to modern data communications. Start
with the explanation of Shannon?s model to naming some of the day to day
applications used in the workplace and home.

I spent about 10 minutes reviewing some of the topics. I like the break down of
each topic ie History, services and summary ect.... I believe that students
could use this in understanding each topic better.

Well structured for easy use. Combination of text and pictures helps in
understanding the concepts. Pop-up ads are a nuisance however.

Overall it is a good Website to get info on Data Communication, all though
videos are not available yet and few latest topics are missing as well. I also
recommend inserting more diagrams to material to simplify the concepts.

Good resource of information. Easy to use. The site has not been updated since
1999, but, for the most part, information remains resonably current. Only the
newest technologies are missing.

Technical Remarks:

Good site with a lot of information. Could be made to look better, but it gets
its point across nonetheless.
