Abstract

The purpose of this study is to develop a learning tool for high school students studying the scientific aspects of information and communication networks. More specifically, we focus on the basic principles of network protocols as the aim to develop our learning tool. Our tool gives students hands-on experience to help understand the basic principles of network protocols.
