    Posted by Wen Hu Monday 18 September 2023, 11:55:31 AM.

    We hope that you had a great weekend. We are about to start Week 2 and would like to remind you of few things:

    • Labs ( Lab 1 ) will start from this week. Make sure you attend the correct lab, the lab slot you are enrolled in, and establish a line of communication with your tutor. Stay in touch with your tutor throughout the term regarding all your labs.
    • In Week 2 lectures, we will learn the famous layering concept and the layering architecture that underpin computer networking and the Internet. We will make a start with the Application Layer and try to cover HTTP and Email in this week.
    • You are highly encouraged to attend the lectures in-person and shape the interactions and engagements that go on in such face-to-face teaching. In case you miss the in-person lectures, video recordings of lectures are available from Echo360 but you will have to be logged into Moodle to access them.
    • We are developing the assignment specs for you, which is expected to be released later next week.
    • It's great to see that many of you are already using the Ed forum . Those not sure how to access the forum, please remember that must join the forum first via the following link:
    • Homework questions for Week 2 is available. We have also released the sample solutions for Homework questions for Week 1.
    • Looking forward to see you in the lecture tomorrow.
