My research proposal/question is as follows:
Observing the effects of using screencasts to assist in the use of network simulation software for teaching computer networking.
I intend to use screencasts to supplement instruction on using network simulation software. This software is used to teach computing students how to build and configure computer networks without using physical equipment. There has been much study on using simulators to teach networking and this has proven very beneficial for enhancing student learning (Frezzo, 2014, Goldstein, Leisten, Stark & Tickle, 2005)
