Equipment List

You will also need to bring a laptop that can load and run packet tracer.

The IOT Fundamentals curriculum consists of 3 courses: Connecting Things, Big Data & Analytics and the Hackathon Playbook.

It covers the core and emerging topics needed to achieve these outcomes, such as prototyping, programming IoT devices, electronic circuit design, network connectivity, IoT security, data visualization and much more. One of the consistent instructional focus areas across the IoT Fundamentals curriculum is to develop and expand a creative “Maker” mindset. Students tinker, prototype, and iterate in a lab environment modeled after “Maker Spaces” and then transition to understand how those concepts can be applied at the Enterprise level to transform businesses.

The curriculum has been precisely engineered with many features to help students explore and understand the domain, outlined below:

Rich multimedia content, including interactive activities, videos, games, and quizzes, addresses a variety of learning styles to help stimulate learning and increase knowledge retention.

Cisco Prototyping Lab to facilitate hands-on labs using a blend of Maker-grade technologies (Raspberry Pi, Arduino) and Enterprise-grade technologies (Cisco Spark).

Packet Tracer simulation-based learning activities help students develop critical thinking and complex problem solving skills by designing realistic models of real or imagined implementations.

Assessments provide immediate feedback to support the evaluation of knowledge and acquired skills.

Hackathons are used as a learning tool to reinforce and apply the skills students have acquired thus far. In the hackathon they will work in a team to identify a business or social need, design a prototype of a solution to address the identified need, and present their solution to their peers and an “expert” panel.
