Course Files and Computing Resources
Basic course information is available through the course Web page:
On-line copies of handouts, assignments, and other documents for the course are available on the course WebCT page accessible through http://webct.colostate.edu/webct/public/home.pl . You must have an electronic ID (eID) to access the course WebCT page.
Current announcements and a calendar are on the WebCT page as well. You must access this page frequently to check for current assignments and test dates.
Programming assignments require Java programming and are submitted via the class WebCT assignment page. Before submission, you must test assignments on a Computer Science lab machine. This can be done remotely by using ssh to connect to such a machine. The instructor or graduate teaching assistant compiles and runs your program on these machines to determine your grade. Computer help can be obtained from this site: http://www.cs.colostate.edu/helpdocs/.
You will take some online quizzes that are accessible only through WebCT.
WebCT includes a class bulletin board which is ideal for asking questions about the course, assignments, computer help, etc. Other students may respond with appropriate answers before the instructors or GTA even read the question. No homework solutions should be posted by students, although some hints are permissible. Of course, students need to judge whether or not these responses are correct. If an answer is questionable, an instructor or GTA will eventually post a response.
WebCT can be used with current browsers on most machines, anywhere. Some firewalls have been known to interfere with WebCT access. WebCT requires browser pop-up windows to be enabled.
