How to Use the Course

To start the course

††††††††††† If you are using the course completely independently and you have to install it for

††††††††††† yourself, consult the section 'Installation Procedure' in this manual.

††††††††††† Normally, the course will have been installed for you, and all you will have to do

††††††††††† is start it up.

††††††††††††††††††††††† First turn on your computer.

††††††††††††††††††††††† Make sure you know which drive the course is installed on.(The course

††††††††††††††††††††††† administrator or whoever is in charge of the installation should be able to

††††††††††††††††††††††† tell you. It is normally installed on the C: drive or on your LAN.)

††††††††††††††††††††††† Run windows, open the appropriate CBT group and then select the course.

All you have to do now is follow the instructions on screen.

If the Student Registration system is in place

††††††††††† Type your user-number. This will be supplied by whoever is administering the

††††††††††† course.

††††††††††† You may also be asked to type a password. This will be supplied by your course

††††††††††† administrator.

Ifthe Student Registration system is not in place

††††††††††† Type 0 when you are asked for your user-number.

††††††††††† This will take you straight to the main menu screen.

If the Self Registration system is in place

††††††††††† If you have not been allocated a user-number, type self.

††††††††††† You will then be prompted to enter your name and whatever number you choose.

††††††††††† Your user-number will then be created for you, and any time you re-enter the ††††††††† course, you should enter this user-number..

Main menu/course map

††††††††††† When you first enter the course, you will be presented with the course map,

††††††††††† which also functions as the course menu, with course units listed.

††††††††††† To see the topics menu for any unit, click that unit. To see the topics menu for

††††††††††† another unit, there is no need to close the current topics menu: simply click the

††††††††††† relevant unit in the list of course units to replace the current topics list with the

††††††††††† required topics list.

††††††††††† Double-click any topic to enter the unit at the start of that topic.

††††††††††† Double-click any screen number to enter the unit at the start of that

††††††††††† particular screen.

Questions and Tasks

As you work through the course, you will find that presentation of material is

constantly tempered by questions.

Some questions are asked in order to check that you have understood a point

you learned earlier in the course. But more often, you are asked discovery

questions. These are questions that you may not know the answers to. This is

part of our teaching technique and is a strategy for drawing you into active

participation in your own learning.

Discovery questions are there not to test you but to provide you with the

opportunity to enter into dialog with the course. They are asked in a spirit of

involvement, nudging you towards conclusions, helping you to make

connections. Instead of being a passive recipient of snippets of narrative, you

are asked to take an active part, attempting to work out for yourself how you

think the narrative will unfold. For this reason, you should not feel intimidated

by these questions, or feel that you should be able to answer them all. If you

answer a question incorrectly, that is not a mark of failure; look on it simply as

an opportunity to learn the right answer.

In addition, the course may include simulations, where you are invited to

practice using the application by completing a series of tasks. If you complete

a task correctly, you will not normally be given feedback, but your action will

simply have the result it would have in a real application environment. If you

do not complete the task successfully, you will either be invited to try again, or

the task will be completed for you.


Taking the Test

The test is presented in two formats: you can take a course test, where you are

tested on the contents of the whole course; or there may also be individual unit

tests.

We recommend that you should follow the course and then take the course test.

The test results indicate which units if any you need to review. We suggest that

you should review the recommended units, and then take the appropriate unit

tests (if available). You could also repeat the full course test if you wish.

The course test can also be used as a pre-course test. If you feel you are

reasonably proficient in the course material, you could test your skills by taking

the course test before you follow the course. The results may indicate that you

should take the whole course, or that you should concentrate on particular units.

Again, if you decide to concentrate on particular units, you can test your

knowledge of these units afterwards by taking the unit test.

In any case, it is not recommended that you follow a unit and then take the unit

test immediately. It is better to allow a time lapse, and perhaps to take a group of

unit tests together.

To take the test, click the option button Test at the foot of the Course Map

screen. You will be presented with a menu, from where you can choose the test

you require.

The first option on this menu is Full Course Test. If you choose this option, you

will be taken into a test consisting of a large number of randomly generated

questions ranging over the content of the whole course. Because the questions are

randomly generated, you may take the full course test more than once without

being presented with the same selection of questions.

Alternatively, you may choose to be tested on any individual unit, simply by

selecting that unit from the test menu. Note that the questions in the unit-based

tests are not randomly generated, so if you repeat any unit test, you will be asked

the same series of questions.


Although the questions in the test look much like questions in the course, it is

important to realize that they serve a different function - that of assessing your

assimilation of material covered in the course. For this reason, questions in the

test are more strictly judged than questions in the course. You will not have the

option to skip questions (ie the Cancel button will not be active) and you will not

normally have a second chance to attempt a question after feedback has been

given.

At the end of the test you will be given your results, and it will be indicated to

you which units of the course you need to review, if any.

It is especially important to type answers carefully in the test. The test is not

designed to accept as wide a range of spelling errors as the course.

Your score is electronically recorded via the CMI (computer managed

instruction) system. If you take the course test, and subsequently take individual

unit tests, your score in the unit test will over-ride your score in the same units in

the course test. If you take the course test again, your latest course-test score will

over-ride any other tests you may have taken earlier.

Your test score is accessible to the course administrator and you can also check it

yourself at any point from the main menu screen. Simply click on the Progress

button (or press Alt+ p) at the foot of the main menu screen.

Unit aim

To provide an outline of the technical features of ATM networks

Unit objectives



After completing this unit you should be able to

q††† describe the basic features of the ††††††† ATM network architecture

q††† describe the structure of the ††† ATM layer

q††† explain how user-data is carried †††††††† from endpoint to endpoint on the †††††† network

q††† outline the process of actually ††††††††††† transmitting ATM cells

Unit summary

The ATM network architecture has a layered structure.

The ATM layer provides the basic transport functions whereas the adaption layer communicates with higher-level services and the physical layer handles the hardware interface.

The ATM layer is composed of the virtual channel level and the virtual path level.

A transmission path may carry several virtual paths and a virtual path may comprise several virtual channels.

Virtual connections, which provide endpoint to endpoint delivery, are formed by joining together virtual channels.

ATM can provide switched, semi-permanent and permanent connections.

ATM can be seen as a continuous stream of fifty-three-octet cells flowing across a physical transmission interface.

ATM networks will support a variety of terminal hardware including some which are not directly ATM-compatible.

q††† provide a general description of †††††††† ATM transmission

q††† explain how ATM networks perform switching functions

q††† describe the ATM user-network †††††††† interface

Unit summary

ATM is a high-bandwith, high-speed, low-delay switching and multiplexing technology.

It transmits data in fixed-sized 53-octet cells.

There is a wide variety of ATM switching networks.

Routing within switching networks may be on a table-controlled or a self-routing basis.

Topics

ATM and LANs

Connecting LANs accross ATM networks

ATM equipment

Unit aim

To outline the practical issues involved in implementing ATM networks

Unit objectives

After completing this unit you should be able to

q††† describe how existing local area †††††††† networks can be adapted to ATM

q††† describe the LAN Emulation (LANE) protocol

q††† outline how ATM fits in with existing WAN technologies

q††† describe the basic types of ATM ††††††† hardware


Unit summary

There is a long-term movement towards replacing existing network technologies with ATM.

LAN Emulation(LANE) has made it easier to use ATM with existing networks.

Applications can be run over a network with LANE providing data conversion between the ATM cells and LAN packets.

LANE allows users to retain their existing LAN infrastructures, while taking advantage of those features supported by ATM.

LANE is a layer 2 protocol. It causes an ATM network to appear as a connectionless segment to higher-level protocols and applications.

For the moment, ATM must co-exist with many disparate LAN technologies.

ATM can handle other standards apart from cell relay.

SMDS and frame relay are two of the most important standards that ATM will initially have to co-exist with.

ATM hardware can be classified under the following broad headings:

q††† Campus and LAN switches

q††† Private network switches

q††† Routers

q††† Adapter cards

q††† DSUs


Userís Notes

Unit aim

To describe the process of evolution to ATM and to point out some of the potential problems

Unit objectives

After completing this unit you should be able to

q††† describe how network equipment †††††† is evolving to support ATM

q††† prepare for the transition to ATM

q††† list the factors which obstruct the †††††† spread of ATM

Unit summary

At the network level, evolution to ATM will require entirely new network hardware.

Existing terminals will be easier to adapt to ATM than network equipment.

The movement from existing networks to ATM will be made easier if the user exercises foresight.

Among the obstacles that inhibit the acceptance of ATM are the lack of agreed standards, prohibitively high lowest speeds, incompatibility with existing hardware and the need to redesign networks as traffic is moved from private to public networks.

††††††††††† If you choose Continue, and if the course is on the selected drive, the course will †† be deleted and the subdirectory removed.
Considerations for network use

††††††††††† There are a number of Windows resource files which the course needs in order to

††††††††††† run.

††††††††††† During installation, you are given the choice of installing these in either the

††††††††††† course directory or the Windows SYSTEM directory.

††††††††††† If you are installing the course on a LAN drive, it is best to put these files in the

††††††††††† course directory, so that they will be accessible to other workstations on the

††††††††††† network.

Access from other workstations

††††††††††† To access the course from a workstation other than the one used to install the

††††††††††† course, follow these steps:

††††††††††††††††††††††† Load Windows.

††††††††††††††††††††††† Either create a program group for CBT Systems courses, or

††††††††††††††††††††††† open this group if it already exists on the workstation.

††††††††††††††††††††††† Choose File - New - Program Item.

††††††††††††††††††††††† Using the Browse option, select the file ATMNET.EXE in the course

††††††††††††††††††††††† directory on the network drive where you installed the course.

††††††††††††††††††††††† Click OK when satisfied with the options.

††††††††††† There will now be an icon for the course on your Windows desktop.

††††††††††† Double-clicking on this icon will run the course.


Computer Managed Instruction Administration

The course is administered via a CMI (Computer Managed Instruction) system.

Normally, only the course administrator has access to the CMI system.

How to install the CMI Administration system

It's best to install the CMI Administration system on the course administrator's PC.

But remember, the CMI system must be able to access the course - if the course is not on

a LAN, you must install the CMI system and the course on the same PC.

††††††††††† First run Windows (version 3.1 or later required).

††††††††††† Insert the CBT Curriculum - CMI Admin Disk in drive A or B, as

††††††††††† appropriate.

††††††††††† From the Program Manager, choose File - Run.

††††††††††† Next either

††††††††††††††††††† type a:setup or b:setup (as appropriate), and press Enter

††††††††††† or

††††††††††††††††††† use the Browse option to select your floppy disk drive and then type

††††††††††††††††††† setup.exe

††††††††††† You are now given the option of changing your CMI system installation drive.

††††††††††† When you're ready, click Continue.

††††††††††† The CMI Administration system is now installed on your selected drive, and a

††††††††††† program group called 'CBT Systems CMI Administration' is created.

††††††††††† This group contains the program icon.If you want, you can move this icon to

††††††††††† another group.


How to enter the CMI Administration system

††††††††††† Run Windows and select the CMI Administration icon from the

††††††††††† appropriate group.

††††††††††† On entering the program, you will be asked to enter your CMI password.

††††††††††† If this is the first time the program is being run, enter a new password - this will

††††††††††† then become the CMI password.

††††††††††† If the program has been run before, you must enter the existing CMI password.

††††††††††† If you want to change the existing password, click the New button.You must

††††††††††† then enter the existing password, before entering your choice for the new

††††††††††† password.

††††††††††† The CMI password is not case-sensitive.

How to register a course with the CMI Administration system

††††††††††† From the Setup drop-down menu select Register Course(s).
