I have primarily taught networking classes during my career, with a few forays into social networking and Western Civilization.
I keep all my class materials available online, including syllabi, assignments, and code.
CS 460 Computer Communications and Networking: Introductory course in networking for undergraduate and beginning graduate students. Focuses on understanding how the Internet works, from the application layer down to the link layer. Application-layer networking, transport protocols (TCP and UDP), routing protocols, IP, link-level protocols, wireless networking, and multimedia networking.
CS 660 Computer Networks: This graduate course explores advanced topics in computer networks, focusing on fundamental research being conducted to improve the Internet. Topics include applications, routing, transport, wireless, measurements and other Internet research areas.
I often mentor undergraduate students interested in working on research projects. We can now offer credit for a semester of undergraduate research, and sometimes have funding to pay students as well. In past semesters I mentored students on open source projects, including the 20 Minute Genealogist project (now Kinpoint), leaf, and Citizen Budget.
Digital Civilization: Honors 202 Western Civilization 2, co-taught with Gideon Burton in the English department in Fall 2010 and Winter 2012. Teaches western civilization from our current perspective in the digital revolution. The course emphasizes self-directed learning and the use of digital media (blogging, social bookmarking, social networking) to understand and relate to the history of Western civilization.
