    You may only request a review of your assign2 work if

    • you have assessed the work fairly using the same criteria as the peer assessment (an assessment template is available ), and
    • the mark you obtain is at least 4 more than the consensus mark awarded by the peer assessment, and
    • as well as reporting your self-assessment mark, you also describe in detail which aspects of the peer assessment were unfair.

    Considering the problems regarding lecture recording quality and availability on echo360 system, I have recorded the Monday Week-5 lecture on my notebook, and you can view the recording at the following web-link:

    I will continue to record lectures, and make them available as above. I have also requested ITU unit to address the problems related to lecture recording quality and availability on echo360 system as soon as possible.

    Examples discussed during Monday Week05 lecture is available under " Examples from Monday Week05 lecture ", see "Week05" in "Lectures" in the left panel.

    Possible Error in OpenOffice: If you get the following error while creating a button and assigning macro to it,

    "OpenOffice requires a Java runtime environment (JRE) to perform this task. Please install a JRE and restart OpenOffice."

    most likely it is because either you do not have Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on your machine, OR your Java Runtime Environment is not compatible with your OpenOffice! One possible solutions is as below:

    1. backup your OpenOffice files (to cloud or a usb drive)
    2. remove OpenOffice 4.1.3 (the latest version, most likely you installed this version)
    3. install java runtime environment (see Java SE Runtime Environment 8 Downloads )
    4. install OpenOffice 4.1.2 (make sure to change version number to 4.1.2 on this download page )
