Computer networking is a topic that has many different concepts and can be difficult to grasp for many students. As a solution to this problem this research is studying the effectiveness of a web application that is designed to support students in learning the many topics associated with computer networking. Web applications’ effectiveness is not clearly defined from a quantitative perspective in specific subjects. The main question that we want to answer in this research is as follow, “Can a web application designed for a specific class produce higher grades?” This research would give those students a new tool that could be used to improve their grades in CS 422. Students will have access to videos that they can watch as many times as needed, and flash cards to help them study. This research is important because it could make a difference for computer science students. My previous research showed learn how students feel and think about web-based applications and mobile technology education. A group of students were given an in-class lecture and access to an application to learn a specific topic in CS 112. Results have shown that the test scores after having an in-class lecture was significantly lower than the test scores after using the application.
