Greening Data Communications and Computer Networks Through the Networking Academy
Visual learning has been the paradigm shift for most of the courses offered in colleges and universities. Through the years, teaching Data Communications and Computer Networks has been normally done using abstract approaches, where students gripped the theories and concepts mostly with imagination and analogy. Initially offered in the Philippines in 1998, the Cisco Networking Academy (CNA) has been a major player in revolutionizing the perspectives of education. The CNA has expanded its horizon in developing highly-effective strategies in teaching pedagogies through curriculum development, education focus and distance-learning approaches.
