Accessible online Packet Tracer: volunteers needed
Community Testing of PT-Anywhere during June/July 2020
The Open University, in collaboration with Cisco Networking Academy, created PT-Anywhere - a remote, HTML5 version of the Packet Tracer simulator. This offered students and teachers the opportunity to use Packet Tracer without installing anything on their desktop computers or smart devices as part of an integrated learning experience.
Funded by the UFITrust, the course Discovering Computer Networks was created and released late 2019, hosting 28 different remote Packet Tracer based micro-lab activities.
The OU are now working on improving the experience for vision impaired students, ensuring that the technology will work with commonplace operating systems based screen readers and NVDA.
