AbstractWe use routing in computer networks as an experiment to determine the viability of using a computer game specifically designed to incorporate abstract learning materials as part of a blended learning environment. Routing is the process of determining a data packet�??s path trough a network. The students participating in the experiment play a short computer game where the word is a network modelled as a labyrinth. The conclusion we draw from the experiment is that overall the students felt that they learned just as much from this as from a traditional lecture/lab, but that they enjoyed this more.
