NSWI141: Introduction to Networking


The lecture has two parts. The first (larger) part covers fundamentals of computer networking. The second part is an introduction in world wide web and web technologies.



If nothing changes, lessons will take place in the N2 classroom face to face and they will be streamed via the Zoom platform. The lessons will be recorded and later published here. There are also recordings from the last year and I will decide which one will be finally used for publishing. On this website, you find also the slides with comments which are text recordings from the lectures, in fact. At the end of a series of slides from one lesson, there is a slide with questions on the most important topics discussed so you can verify how do you understand the particular lesson.

Teaching - web part

If possible, lectures this semester will be held face to face. They will also be streamed via Zoom platform (using a different meeting ID!). Similar to the networking part of the lecture, there are slides with a commentary from the last year available at this website.


To recieve credit for the course, you need to solve a home assignment and subequently pass a test. The home assignment has to be completed before you subscribe for the test. Number of points received for a test will determine your final mark.

Final test

This year, the test will be organized in an on-line form. At the time of the exam in the SIS, a meeting will be open on ZOOM ID 401 094 2506 (as in the network part of the lecture), I will invite you to breaking rooms, here you will prove your identity and test your camera and microphone of your computer/laptop or tablet/smartphone and you will be given access data to a special server where you will solve the quiz as a web application. You will have the camera on and the microphone turned off throughout your work, in case of technical problems you will turn on the microphone and communicate with me. After saving the final result to the server, you can log out of Zoom. You will find out the results in the SIS the next day at the latest. If you are interested in seeing where you went wrong, please contact me by e-mail and I will generate and send you a list of these questions.
