“When software is hard to use, don’t make excuses for it. Improve it. When a user makes a mistake, don’t blame the user. Ask how the software misled them. Then fix it. The user’s time is more valuable than ours. Respect it. Good UI design is humble.” — Jono DiCarlo

Immediately after (due 12 midnight the day of class) you will be asked to write down and answer via the Canvas Class Discussion Board the most valuable thing you learned, and any questions that you may still have.
Are you kidding me, in 2019? All required readings will be available on-line.
No midterm, but a final exam worth 40%, and…
The final exam questions will be (most likely) written by you 🎉
Create one potential question using a multiple-choice or short answer format, with the correct answer, to test student understanding of that material
The creation of course assessment questions is a valuable learning exercise for students, as it moves beyond the simple recollection of facts to a deeper analysis of course material. This approach also increases student involvement with their final exam experience.
Assessment Guidelines (your input welcome!)
A practice weekly quiz (not graded) is now available, due by Friday Sep 6th. Example questions + answers will be reviewed in the following class.
A multi-device friendly course site is available. All materials are also available directly within Canvas.
I always want to hear from you how together we make our course site better. Be honest, I can take it.
