I have a question, should I email it to you?
Unless it is a personal question, please post questions to the D2L Q&A Forum. This way your classmates and your professor can see and respond to any questions.
What are the advantages to using the D2L Q&A Forum?
Faster - You do not need to wait until your instructor replies but your classmates can reply as well.
All students can see the answer, and many students may have the same question.
When should we email rather than use the D2L Q&A Forum?
Email any code you want me to look over (code should not be posted on the forum)
Email any personal questions
Do you accept late work?
No, really do you accept late work?
Unless there is a medical emergency (with proof), I do not accept late work. Please do all assignments on time as each week is dependent on previous weeks' work.
Why does your website say it's
The course outline page may change throughout the semester. Depending on how the course is going, I may switch weeks around or remove or add topics.
If I work with a friend will you consider that cheating?
Yes, unless I tell you that a project/assignment is a group assignment. Discussing ideas is OK, but all coding/work should be done separately.
Does the class ever meet in person?
No. This is a completely online class. If you would like to meet me, please come to my office hours or make an appointment to see me in my office. I am available and would love to see you!
Do we have to be online at a certain day/time?
No, this class is asynchronous. You can do the work any time you want as long as you complete it BEFORE the due date. You can watch the videos and read the lecture notes at your own convenience.
How do office hours work?
I will have in-person office hours. Please see the syllabus for the time. If that does not work for your schedule, I am also available in person by appointment. Also, feel free to email me. I usually respond to emails within 24 hours.
