Effectiveness of Using Cisco Packet Tracer as a Learning Tool: A Case Study of Routing Protocol

Noor Maizura Mohamad Noor, Nadiah Yayao, and Sumazly Sulaiman
Abstract—Computer network experts are in high demand nowadays. The purpose of this research is to study the effectiveness of using Cisco Packet Tracer as a learning tool. This scenario is considered important to Higher Learning Institutions in order to ensure all students graduated with sufficient network skills. Therefore, computer network requires understanding of both theory and practical, hence network simulation software should be recommended to overcome this problem. Respondents of the study were the 132 second year students from the Bachelor of Computer Science (Software Engineering) and Bachelor of Computer Science (Informatics Maritime) who took the Data Communication and Network course in Universiti Malaysia Terengganu. The questionnaire and simulation of routing protocol performance case study were used as the research instruments in this study.

Index Terms—Computer network, cisco packet tracer, routing protocol, simulation software.
