Virtual Computer Networks Lab

Webinar Details

  • Presented by: Michael Zink from the University of Massachusetts Amherst
  • Date: Friday July 15th
  • Time: 11:00 a.m. - noon ET


In this webinar we will present a series of course modules, which we have developed as part of our GENI Virtual Computer Networks Lab. These course modules have been designed with a focus on undergraduate education in computer networking and distributed system. They can be used by educators as classroom assignments. In addition, they can be used by experimenters as tutorials to learn how to use GENI testbeds and how to execute experiments on such testbeds. We will demonstrate the tools and mechanisms that have been integrated in the modules to support such assignments.

In this webinar, we will introduce four of our course modules and lead the audience through one of the modules step by step. This will give the audience an overview on the capability of our modules and how GENI testbeds can be used in education.
