Tutorials
This course is distinctive in that it does not have any tutorials. If you have any questions on the course material than please ask at lectures or ideally in the laboratory. You can of course email the class coordinator for a meeting.


Practicals
The first laboratory will be held on Tuesday 12th September at 1pm in 4X5/4X8.

There are 4 hours of laboratories each week and you should attend all of them. There is no need to register for a particular laboratory slot as you attend all of them. This reflects the practical emphasis of the course material.



Class Assessment
In addition to laboratory checkpoints, there are two class assessments. Each of the two class assessments is worth 20% of the total course work. The details of the class assessments will be announced later. The first is an in-class test. The class test will examine the distributed component of the module and will be held in the laboratory on Friday 20th October (or possibly Tuesday 17th). The second class assessment is a hand-in assignment that examines the distributed component of the module. This should be submitted during the assigment demo in the laboratory on (probably) Friday 24th November.
