I've been busy setting things up for our first lecture on Tuesday.
To attend the lecture (online) click on the Online Classes tab on the course web page. (Or follow the link here .) About 10-15 minutes before the start of the lecture, a link will appear in the Week 1 Tuesday spot of the Lectures table. You may need to reload your page in order to see it. That link will take you to a YouTube live stream where I will deliver the lecture. You will be able to ask questions during the lecture via the comments.
To start with we will be using certain technologies. If anyone can’t access Google Sheets or YouTube, please contact me via the course forum or e-mail the course e-mail and I’ll adapt the course to ensure accessibility.
Under the Lectures, Tutes and Labs tab, I've uploaded the slides, tutorial work and lab work for week 1. Especially in the first two weeks, if I don't cover all the required material before your tutorial, don't worry. Remember that the lab work is only due the following week. From week 3 I expect students to be able to complete their lab work before their lab each week.
I'm looking forward to meeting you all tomorrow.
Welcome to The Art of Computing for term 2 2021! First of all, I'm posting this notice to introduce myself. I'm Sim, the lecturer for the course. This is my first term lecturing this course, so there may be some hiccups along the way - I appreciate your patience with those.
If you're reading this in an email, you can access the course website by clicking here . You may wish to bookmark it. There's not much there now, but more will be added over this week. Especially keep an eye on the "Online Classes" tab for how to attend lectures, tutorials and labs, and the "Course Work" tab for content as I release it.
The second reason I'm posting this notice is I don't know very much about you. This course attracts students from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences. Some of this is reflected in the information the university gives me, like what program you're enrolled in, but most of it I don't know, like why you're doing this course. Because of this, I would ask you all to complete a survey. It shouldn't take more than 5 minutes, but it will help me learn more about you and what you hope to get out of this course.
