“Mr. Speaker, I rise today as co-chairman of the bipartisan Congressional Internet Caucus to recognize a major step taken last week to develop the growing Internet economy of the United States.
In my home state of Virginia, just a few hours from the United States Capitol, the University of Virginia took the first step last week toward developing America's most technologically advanced Internet Engineering curriculum. […] UVa is now creating VINT-Lab, the premier high-tech training facility of its kind.”
made by Representative Bob Goodlatte,
“The Internet economy is transforming the way we work, live, play and learn. By establishing an Internet Engineering course, the University of Virginia is ensuring that today's students are prepared for tomorrow's jobs.”
Chambers, Cisco Systems President and CEO,
“MCI Telecommunications, together with Cisco Systems, Inc., is committed to forming an Internet laboratory at the University of Virginia […] The value of this donation will exceed one million dollars, and the lab itself will immediately become one of the premier facilities for Internet technology across major universities in the United States.”
Cerf, Senior Vice President MCIWorldcom,
Over a period of
several years, I developed a lab manual for a course in Internet
An adaptation of this lab manual has been disseminated to approximately
in the context of a National Science Foundation supported project to
Internet Engineering curriculum. In June 2001, I hosted the 3rd
NSF sponsored 3rd
Internet Teaching Labs (ITL) Workshop, which included a
training component for instructors on the lab manual. I have
completed a textbook for a lab
networking course with Prof. Magda El
Zarki from UC Irvine, which is published by Addison-Wesley in August
I am involved in efforts to advance education in computer networking. I was a co-organizer of the First and Second ACM Sigcomm Workshops on Computer Networking Education in 2002 and 2003. The goal of the workshops is to shape a template curriculum for computer networking education, and their outcome are recommendations that will be adopted by ACM Sigcomm as guidelines for networking educators.
In 1995, I received a fellowship from the Teaching and Technology Initiative at the University of Virginia. Within the context of this fellowship, I have developed a set of multimedia applications which adopted early Internet teleconferencing tools and collaborative applications for use in teaching, called the grounds-wide tele-tutoring system (gwTTS). In 1997, in a project funded by Litton-Fibercom and Virginia's CIT, I developed the DLC (Distance Learning Controller) system, which enhances gwTTS by delivering broadcast-quality video. The DLC system has been licensed to Litton-Fibercom and became a commercial product.
