There are weekly Lectures and Tutorials planned for this course. There will be one or two programming assignments on Network Applications and set of DIY handouts. This is an Introduction course, hence there will be a broad coverage of topics on Networking. Every session introduces some new topic, hence your attendance and participation is very important!
Lectures will be conducted as per the schedule below. Usually there will be one or two lecture groups/sessions. If there are two are more Lecture groups/sessions the same content will be repeated in both the sessions.
Students are recommended to attend the specific group/session for which they have registered for. Anyhow, under unavoidable circumstances, the students can attend another group/session for that week. There is no need to get prior permission for temporary change of Lecture group.
Though attendance is not taken, the students are expected to attend all the Lectures as some important announcements and discussions will be made during the Lectures.
There is NO webcast or podcast for this course.For make-up lectures (if any), we may arrange for webcast.
There are weekly tutorials. Usually there will be multiple groups/sessions. Please refer below for the schedule.
Attendance will be taken at the beginning of each session. Students should attend the group/sessions for which they have registered for. If you want to change your tutorial group/session, you should apply through tutorial registration/swap system and inform both the tutors affected upon approval. For temporary changes (for one or two sessions) you should get prior permission form the tutors affected. Make sure the attendance register is updated after any change.
You are responsible for making the tutorials sessions lively. The sessions are designed for discussing your solutions/answers and views rather than simply looking for the answers/solutions from the tutors.
Solutions/Answers for the Tutorial questions which are discussed during the session will NOT be published/given . However, due to lack of time, if some questions are not discussed then the Solution/Answers for these questions may be published for your reference. If you miss any tutorial session, you may do all the questions yourself and send it to your tutor to get your solutions/answers verified.
