This study formatively evaluated online training modules in networking skills. These modules are part of the e-Learning Network (a curriculum covering Internetworking concepts), developed with the support of a grant from the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education. The e-Learning Network modules are offered, nationwide, through universities, community colleges, and community technology centers. The e-Learning Network is providing adult learners low cost, anytime, anywhere quality networking instruction and preparing adult learners for two existing industry certification examinations: the Cisco Certified Networking Associate (CCNA) and the Cisco Certified Networking Professional (CCNP). This study investigated module utility using attitude, self-efficacy, assessment scores, and usability variables.
