Using wireless service on campus (CruzNet)
If you use CruzNet wireless service on campus, you may have trouble to use
the "LOGIN" section. This means you may NOT be able to take quizzes or see the
lab material if you are using the wireless service. This happens because CruzNet blocks
some methods of Internet access.
I am working to see if this problem can be solved. In the meantime, use a
regular Internet connection when you need to take your quizzes.
Lab assignments are due at the
end of each lab session. Under special circumstances, the supervisor can let you
demonstrate a final version of a program at the beginning of the next lab session. This is
only in case a substantial work was done during the session where the assignment was due.
Any assignment demonstrated
after the due session is NOT ELIGIBLE for credit.
