Excellent explanation of the OSI model and tutorial.

I found it easier to understand the differnt layers of the OSI model. Some of
the students pages were hard to read due to the use of colors. I was unable to
open the student tutorials.

Technical Remarks:

The different pages could have more uniformity.

Good site to learn about the OSI model layers and what each layer does. Good use
of illustrations. Would be helpful to read before a test.

Technical Remarks:

Interesting use of fonts and background colors makes the site stand out.

The homepage to the site was very bland. There didn't appear to be much
information there at first glance. After using a few of the links it gave me a
little more to look at.

A grouping of links to a variety of web sites concerning the OSI model. The
links would be of more use if they were organized in some manner along with

Link to Internet Technical Resources has very useful material and it is ease to
use. Although overall site is unorganized and some of the links does not work
either. No consistency for appearance of the site.

Nice website, linked to a lot of good information and the links worked. Nice
use of diffrent font and color on the one link to how the OSI model worked.

Easy to use website. Site provides links and information about the OSI model
and the function of each layer.
