There have been significant levels of research into how to use technology to teach programming principles. However, there has been less research to show how technology can be used to help teach network fundamentals in a creative way. Instead, simulation has been widely adopted as the main software tool when teaching networking concepts. In this paper we examine a more applied approach to help students gain some knowledge of fundamental concepts in networking such as bandwidth, throughput and latency. We achieved this by designing a tool to support the transmission of data over sound and examined its use on a group (n=20) of networking students.
