  • How you used GENI: You/TA running experiments in the classroom to demonstrate concepts, in-class assignments, take-home assignments?
  • Did you use of any of the exercises on the GENI web page? If so, which ones? Any comments/suggestions on these exercises such as their correctness, relevance to the networking curriculum, ways in which they may be improved, etc.?
  • Did you develop your own exercises to use on GENI? If so, what were they about?
  • Did you or your TA take advantage of training sessions at the GECs/summer or winter camps/Train-the-TA webinars? If so, were these useful and do you have suggestions for improving them.
  • What were the major challenges faced by your students?
  • What were the major challenges faced by you as an instructor?
  • What did you expect the benefits would be to incorporating a testbed such as GENI into your teaching? Were these benefits realized?
  • If you were to use GENI again, is there something you would do differently?
