Week 14 Update
by Quinn Warnick - Thursday, 8 April 2010, 11:13 PM

I have update the course website with additional details about Week 14. Here are the highlights:

- Your final report for Unit #3 is due at the beginning of class on Tuesday. Please bring a printed copy of your report (along with copies or originals of all supporting documents, such as usability testing notes) to class on Tuesday. In addition, one member of your team should upload an electronic copy of your Unit #3 report to the class website before you come to class. As you finalize your written reports, please remember to do three things: (1) review the assignment sheet to make sure that your document meets the assignment criteria, (2) review the handout on IMRAD format that we discussed in class a few weeks ago, and (3) rely on Chapters 21-23 in your textbook for guidance on formatting your report.

- In class on Tuesday, we will begin discussing Unit #4, the electronic portfolio assignment. IMPORTANT: Please note that we will meet in Ross 15, the other computer lab in the basement of Ross Hall.

- On Thursday, we will hold a HTML/CSS workshop in our regular computer lab. Please bring an electronic copy of your current résumé to class. To prepare for the workshop, please read Chapter 15 and watch the "XHTML and HTML Essential Training" videos on Lynda.com (linked on the class website). These videos last 4+ hours, so don't put off this assignment until the last minute. Some of the videos are very basic, so if you are already familiar with HTML/XHTML, you may be able to skim and/or skip some of the videos. In addition, I have posted a list of the most important videos to watch on the class website. I am not insisting that you watch every minute of every video, but you will need to be familiar with the basic principles of HTML and CSS before you come to class.

As always, if you have any questions about these items, please let me know. Good luck putting the finishing touches on your team reports—I look forward to reading them!
