Week 1 Class 1 Tue Jan 12 Posted: Jan 12

The course is an online, asynchronous course.

The screencasts are in Brightspace. Login to Brightspace first, then use the Screencast Folder for this class session: Class 1 Tue Jan 12

The first screencast, Welcome & Introduction, has a lot more explanation.

Class session:

  1. Screencast: Welcome & Introduction
  2. Announcements:

    Most screencasts have an associated exercise. You are required to view the screencast to get credit for the associated exercise. You have until 4 pm on the day following the class meeting to view the screencast and complete and submit the exercise.

    View the rest of the screencasts and complete the exercises in order.

  3. Screencast: Crosswords
  4. Exercise 1: Course Content Crossword

    Upload a PDF of the completed crossword to Brightspace in Assessments/Assignments, Exercises, Exercise 1: Course Content Crossword

    Make sure to follow the print directions given in the screencast.

    During class time, I will monitor uploads and attempt to provide feedback and a grade to this exercise as soon as possible.

  5. Screencast: Software Design notes

    The notes shown in this screencast are available via the notes link and on the Notes page.

  6. Exercise 2: Software Design Crossword

    Upload a PDF of the completed crossword to Brightspace.

    Make sure to follow the print directions given in the Course Content screencast.

  7. Exercise 3: OOP Survey

    To access and complete the form, login to Google using your @zips.uakron.edu email.

    You will receive full credit if you complete the form. There is nothing to submit to Brightspace for this exercise.

    Completing the survey is not immediately reflected in your grade for this exercise. It requires Dr. Collard to view your completed survey and enter the grade.

  8. Announcements:

    See the separate post on setting up your GitHub Account. You will need your GitHub account for Thursday’s class.

    The class is asynchronous, so you have the flexibility for when to view the screencasts and complete the exercises, as long as you submit them by the due date/time. It is a good practice to set up a regular time to complete a class meeting. By default, use the time of the course, 12:15 - 1:30 pm. If that does not fit your schedule, find another set time to use.
