Supporting students with feedback and guidance while they work on networking exercises can be provided in on-campus universities by human course advisors. A shortcoming however is that these advisors are not continuously available for the students, especially when students are working on exercises independently from the university, e.g. at home using a virtual environment. In order to improve this learning situation we present our concept of an exercise assistant, which is able to provide feedback and guidance to the student while they are working on exercises. This exercise assistant is also able to verify solutions based on expert knowledge modelled using description logic.
