Important Dates for CST8214 Students
Term assignments and labs will also be due every week or two (for a total of 15%).
EMail is a critical part of course delivery for this course. You must have a working Algonquin EMail address for this course. You must read your EMail regularly (daily) during the school term.
You can forward your Algonquin EMail to any other address you wish. Search for "forward" in the ITS Mail Help . Please ensure that your email messages always originate from your Algonquin EMail address or else my spam blocker may throw away your unknown mail address as junk. Your "From:" address must be your Algonquin EMail address, not a Hotmail, Carleton, or other off-campus address.
You are responsible for keeping your own forwarding address accurate during the term. During the term, I will only send your marks to your (possibly forwarded) Algonquin EMail address.
You may wish to set your "alternate" EMail using Algonquin ACSIS while on campus. I may use your alternate EMail to inform you that your main Algonquin EMail account has a forwarding error; no personal data will ever be sent to the alternate EMail address.
Working together is not permitted except in assignments specifically labelled by the instructor as group assignments.
Even where using another person's material is permitted (from other students, books, the Internet, or even from the blackboard or posted course notes), copying material from other sources and submitting it without proper credit to the author is an academic offence called plagiarism. You must credit the source of material that you did not write yourself, no matter from where it comes!
Students working together without authorization or submitting work containing plagiarized material in the programme will be charged with academic fraud under Algonquin Academic Regulations. Read the plagiarism document for details.
The College got a special "bundle" price for this text that includes an Intel Assembly Language text that is not required for CST8214. The ISBN number for the bundle is "0763744824".
The Hardware Kit for CST8214 is available at the Algonquin New Technology Store. The PC Toolkit contains a screwdriver and antistatic wrist strap. You will also need a Duo-Tang binder for your lab assignments and notes, a small tray to hold loose parts such as screws, and a few floppy diskettes.
Web notes for this course are not kept at Algonquin College. I pay for them to be stored on a commercial Linux-based web hosting service, with backup copies located in other locations.
Write down the locations of the web notes and their backup copies from the list below. (You won't be able to get to this page if the main web site is down!)
