FTA:Open Networks Course Development
Open Networks v2.0
The Open Networks Course originally developed by UOC/Enric Peig Olivé as PID_00164576 had become dated. I have undertaken a project to re-develop the course.
The course module itself is described already in the FTA Network Technologies course module.
The v2.0 1st release materials are available to review at: FTA Open Networks Manual v2.0.
The source material is available at: FTA Open Networks Manual v2.0
The v2.0 study guide is available to at FTA Open Networks Study Guide
The v2.0.4 DRAFT source material is available to at FTA Open Networks v2.0.4 source DRAFT materials
