Attendance is required at all scheduled lectures and tutorials. Learning materials Details of learning materials that support your success in this subject can be found in the Interact2 Subject Site. Learning, teaching and support strategies Engaging with the subject means that you are making yourself familiar with the requirements of the subject, accessing the subject material. So that you don’t fall behind, it is important that you engage with your studies from the first week of the session. The study schedule given before in the subject outline tells you what topics are to be studied during each week of the session. Subject outline Your first task in the subject is to print out a copy of the subject outline (the document you are looking at now), and read through it very carefully. You can find an icon at the top right of the page which will take you to a printable PDF of the subject outline. This document contains essential information about the subject concerning assessment, marking criteria and special consideration. Please be sure to make a note of when the assessment items are due and when the exam period is. Since we won’t know the exam date until around the middle of the session, you must make sure you are available for the entire exam period. Subject Site The subject Interact site is where you will find the material and information that you need in order to engage with the subject. The site is divided into sections which are accessed from tabs on the left-hand side of the page. Learning modules are also accessible from the subject Charles Sturt University Subject Outline ITC542 201890 S I Version 1 – Published 08 October 2018 Page 6 of 33 site. You should check the site for announcements at least once a week – these appear on your Interact dashboard and are also sent by email. Early engagement The first assessment item is intended to be a short item which will help you to engage with the subject and encourage you to begin studying the material early in the teaching session. It is due shortly after the census date, which is the last day by which you can withdraw without penalty. How you are expected to engage with the subject: All the subject materials are available on the Interact subject site under the Topics link in the left-hand menu. I suggest that for each topic you read the learning objectives carefully and attempt the weekly activities. The topics are available online only, you can download and print topics as you like. In this subject, there are also lots of opportunities for you to engage with me, with your peers and with the subject during the weekly lectures. You should check the Interact Site at least weekly for postings, announcements, lecture information and other resources that will assist your studies or additional information and resources vital to your success in the subject.

The company’s local area network (LAN) is captured in the topology below: Charles Sturt University Subject Outline ITC542 201890 S I Version 1 – Published 08 October 2018 Page 12 of 33 Head Quarter network has 100 network devices including all computers, printers and other devices. Branch A and B subsequently have 30 and 20 devices, respectively. Recently, the company has been assigned with a new space of IP addressing and the whole network has to be re-addressed. Task 1 You are contracted by the company to help with the IP address planning. The following is the new IP address space: IPv4 network: 203.2.XY.0 where XY is the last 2 digits of your student ID Your task is to plan and document An IPv4 address plan for the LAN You are expected to provide an efficient and optimum address allocation solution with the following details: 1. IP address requirement for each sub-network 2. IP address allocation plan for each network/sub-network including network address, subnet mask, broadcast address, default gateway address and valid host address range. 3. IP address allocation plan for key network device and interfaces e.g., servers, printers, router interfaces, etc. Phase 2 Business.com has expanded and it has decided to redevelop the company existing LAN to achieve the company’s following business and technical goals. The Business goals: • Improved communications, wireless, VoIP, and others • Protect company information Technical goals: Charles Sturt University Subject Outline ITC542 201890 S I Version 1 – Published 08 October 2018 Page 13 of 33 • Scalability – company plans to increase employee by 15% in next 12 months. • Accessibility– Employees are able to access to company resources from both company and home (different servers) • Performance – network performance must be high • Security – protection of company information and other IT assets • Flexibility- network should be flexible enough to create logical grouping as required. • Availability – wireless network access is available in all employees as well as some outdoor areas for software developers and employees You are contracted by the company to help with the network redevelopment.

Assessment Information Academic integrity Academic integrity means acting with honesty, fairness and responsibility, and involves observing and maintaining ethical standards in all aspects of academic work. This subject assumes that you understand what constitutes plagiarism, cheating and collusion. If you are a new student we expect you to complete the modules called Academic Integrity at CSU. (https://interact2.csu.edu.au/webapps/blackboard/execute/ courseMain?course_id=_16412_1&task=true&src=) CSU treats plagiarism seriously. We may use Turnitin to check your submitted work for plagiarism. You can use Turnitin to check for plagiarism (http://student.csu.edu.au/library/ integrity/referencing-at-csu/checking) in your assessments before submission. Referencing Referencing is an important component of academic work. All assessment tasks should be appropriately referenced. The specific details of the referencing requirements are included in each assessment task description. Get referencing style guides and help (http://student.csu.edu.au/library/integrity/referencing-at-csu) to use for your assessments. How to submit your assessment items Online submission process Assessment items that are completed within the Interact 2 site, such as quizzes, tests and self and peer assessments in the blog and wiki are noted in the assessment section above. You need to complete these tasks within your subject site. Assessment tasks that are NOT completed through the Subject site need to be submitted electronically via Turnitin site by the due date. Turnitin class details for this subject will be given by your lecturer. Charles Sturt University Subject Outline ITC542 201890 S I Version 1 – Published 08 October 2018 Page 29 of 33 Unless advised otherwise, all Turnitin submissions are due by midnight (AEST) of the date specified. Please note that the time and the date of your Turnitin submission will be used to determine your official submission time. All textual elements within an assessment must be submitted in a format that is readable by Turnitin. Specific exceptions, where an assessment requires the insertion of image-based evidence of workings will be outlined in the context of the assessment. Students that deliberately attempt to insert the content of assessments in a format that is not readable by Turnitin may be subject to Academic misconduct investigations. Additional Submission Information: It is recommended that your name, student ID and page number are included in the header or footer of every page of any assignment. You are also required to rename your assignment file before you submit via Turnitin as per below protocol: SUBJECT CODE, SI, SURNAME, STUDENT ID, ASSESSMENT NUMBER, SESSION. Example – ITC542SI PATEL 11554466 A1 201860.doc Postal submission process Under normal circumstances, postal submissions will not be accepted for any of the assessments required. Hand delivered submission process Under normal circumstances, hand-delivered submissions will not be accepted for any of the assessments required. Alternative submission process See online submission above. Extensions It is best to complete assessment items by the due date. However, when something unavoidable comes up an extension may be possible. The following principles are used when processing extensions 1. For in-session assessment items, an extension request for up to seven (7) days can be made by emailing your subject Lecturer directly before the due date. In your email please state the reason why you need more time as well as what precisely you are requesting. Supporting documentation is not required. If an extension is requested in the above format with a valid reason and your request does not disadvantage other students, the extension will be approved. 2. For in-session assessment items, extension requests of more than seven (7) days must be made via the special consideration form: https://apps.csu.edu.au/specialcons/ (https://apps.csu.edu.au/specialcons/). The request must be made before the due date and must include supporting documentation. Acceptable reasons are given in the Special Consideration Policy (https://policy.csu.edu.au/view.current.php?id=00298). Each request will be considered on a case by case basis. The request may not be granted. 3. If you receive an extension, then you should expect the assessment item and its feedback Charles Sturt University Subject Outline ITC542 201890 S I Version 1 – Published 08 October 2018 Page 30 of 33 to be returned later. If you submit later than the extended due date you will receive late penalties as per guidelines below. Unless your extension permits otherwise, submissions received 10 days after the original due date will receive zero. 4. For end of session exams, the process is a bit different. You can request a supplementary exam via https://apps.csu.edu.au/specialcons/ (https://apps.csu.edu.au/specialcons/). This request must be made within 3 working days of the date of exam and must include supporting documentation. Acceptable reasons are given in the Special Consideration Policy (https://policy.csu.edu.au/view.current.php?id=00298). For medical issues, a CSU medical certificate is required. If the supplementary exam (SX) is awarded then your exam is moved to the next examination period. In order to preserve exam integrity and manage the logistics of exams, the timing of a supplementary exam is heavily restricted. How to apply for special consideration Academic regulations provide for special consideration to be given if you suffer misadventure or extenuating circumstances during the session (including the examination period) which prevents you from meeting acceptable standards or deadlines. Find the form on the Student Portal Special Consideration, Misadventure, Advice and Appeals (http://student.csu.edu.au/ study/academic-advice) page. Penalties for late submission The penalty for late submission of an assessment task (without obtaining the Subject Coordinator’s approval for an extension) will be: 10% deduction per day, including weekends, of the maximum marks allocated for the assessment task, i.e. 1 day late 10% deduction, or 2 days late 20% deduction. An example of the calculation would be: Maximum marks allocated = 20 The penalty for one day late = 2 marks (so, a score of 18/20 becomes 16/20 and a score of 12/20 becomes 10/20). If an assignment is due on a Friday but is not submitted until the following Tuesday, then the penalty will be four days (40% deduction or 8 marks in the example above). Submissions more than 10 days late will be acknowledged as received but will not be marked. Resubmission Under normal circumstances, resubmission of assessment items will not be accepted for any of the assessments required in this subject. Feedback processes Feedback on your assignment can be viewed on Turnitin after the assignment results are Charles Sturt University Subject Outline ITC542 201890 S I Version 1 – Published 08 October 2018 Page 31 of 33 released. You may also approach the lecturer in class for further clarification or feedback on the assignment. Assessment return If your assignment was submitted on time, you should normally expect your marked assignment to be despatched/returned to you within 15 business days of the due date. If an assignment is submitted on time but not returned by the return date, you should make enquiries in the first instance to the Subject Lecturer. If the subject lecturer is not available, please contact your teaching team using the contact details and consultation procedures provided on your Interact2 subject site. Student Feedback & Learning Analytics Evaluation of subjects CSU values constructive feedback and relies on high response rates to Subject Experience Surveys (SES) to enhance teaching. Responses are fed back anonymously to Subject Coordinators and Heads of Schools to form the basis for subject enhancement and recognition of excellence in teaching. Schools report on their evaluation data; highlighting good practice and documenting how problems have been addressed. You can view a summary of survey results via the Student Portal SES Results (https://student.csu.edu.au/study/subjectexperience-survey-results) page. We strongly encourage you to complete your online Subject Experience Surveys. You will be provided with links to your surveys via email when they open three [3] weeks before the end of session. Changes and actions based on student feedback Based on student feedback from previous sessions, some parts of Online Learning Modules within the Interact 2 site have been updated to align with subject content. Learning analytics Learning Analytics refers to the collection and analysis of student data for the purpose of improving learning and teaching. It enables the University to personalise the support we provide our students. All Learning Analytics activities will take place in accordance with the CSU Learning Analytics Code of Practice.
