Fun course with some really interesting interviews with the actual people involved with creating the technology. I was disappointed that the history didn't carry on a bit further into the future with the advent of Google, server side scripting like php etc. I hope that Dr Chuck keeps collecting video interviews to expand the timeline further into the future :)

The technical aspect is very simple, great as an intro but perhaps a little too simple for anyone with a CS related background.

Dr. Chuck is an amazing professor; he makes material accessible to students of any level and I learned a ton-- I definitely have a better grasp of internet history.

This class was a good mix of entertaining stories about the history of the Internet along with a little technical information as well. Dr. Chuck does a good job of explaining networking concepts in an understandable way.

Just to be clear - if you're looking for a really in-depth technical course on networks, this probably isn't it. If you're looking for an interesting class with an introduction to the technical elements though, this is perfect! Even if you already know how networking works, the history and politics behind the creation of the Internet are presented in an interesting and fun way.
