Session 4: PT’s Multiuser Mode Team Activities (Paul Fedele)

Description: Need to add student interaction to your virtual classes? Multiuser Packet Tracer can be used in all Cisco Academy classes for team activities or for skills assessments. Experience multiuser team activities using a Packet Tracer Remote server. Each participant will be assigned a user and various tasks. Participants will also be able to interact with each other and observe their shared progress in another tab.

Session 5: Using PT Simulation Mode to Demonstrate Curriculum Concepts (Pete Anderson & Janet Kropff)

Description: Join us to explore Packet Tracer Simulation Mode and a demonstration of curriculum concepts. Using PT Simulation Mode students can see protocols in action! Packet Tracer demonstrations will be provided, and labs will be shared that can be used in virtual classrooms. Curriculum concepts that will be explored include the OSI Model, trunking, VLANs, Etherchannels, VPNs, routing, ACLs, NAT, QoS, Application Layer packets, Wireless LANs, and basic connectivity etc.

Session 6: Critical Packet Tracer Settings and Teaching Basic Networking Skills Using Packet Tracer 7.3.1 (Elaine Horn & Will Bailey)

Description: You may have opened a Packet Tracer Activity file that has certain features locked or maybe you wish you could lock a feature when creating your own activity. This session will begin with a demonstration of the Packet Tracer Interface, Admin, Hide, and Font Options. Next, a topology will be shared that requires a switch upgrade using a TFTP server and a router that requires password recovery to begin the configuration. The TFTP server will also be used to backup config files. The session will conclude with a PT lab utilizing the Physical environment. By using PT’s Physical Topology, a rack will be added to a wiring closet, Cisco devices will be added to the rack, modules will be added to the router and then cables will be connected.
