Editor's Intro

Smartphone computing platforms are increasingly used for instruction because such devices are becoming as common as traditional desktop computers and they can excite students about computing and networking. This column describes a network application design course at Virginia Tech that uses smartphones as computing platforms. It seeks to provide in-depth descriptions of important and innovative work in education and training in pervasive computing. I welcome your suggestions and comments for future columns.
