This post will provide a way for students of HCI (Fall 07 – FAST-NU) to keep track of their results throughout the semester. Quiz/assignment scores and exam grades will be available through the spreadsheet embedded below. It will be your responsibility to bookmark these pages and visit the pages after exams to see your official score. If you have any problems/concerns, let me know through email. Commenting on this post is enabled but should only be used in case you have suggestions for improvement of this system. Do not post anything about your scores. I will not answer any such queries here.
For those who are interested in the activities of SERG but can’t come over to the end of the world (Phase 7 in Hayatabad), here’s a resource that you might benefit from. Video lectures of workshops conducted by SERG members are being uploaded online on different services. These will invariably be free and you can view them online if you have a reasonable internet connection. See the list here.
Well, it’s been a long time but I’m finally back. The reasons for such a long absence are countless but boil down to just one: I got lazy.
Anyway, here’s what I’ve been working on lately:
- Formal Mathematics (Set theory and logic)
- Isabelle (automated theorem prover)
- LaTeX (lovely, lovely typesetting engine. I don’t need a word processor any more)
- My MS thesis
- My MS research publication (more on this later)
- My “Software Engineering Education” paper – that one’s going to be published by IEEE inshallah very soon.
- And moving my stuff on to linux. I have to live with my conscious
Well, enough for the time being.
I’m always surprised when someone tells me that MIT’s OCW is not free. It stands for “Open Courseware” for God sake!
Just recently, I found audio lectures for Psychology and I must say, even though I had no visual, I could tell that the guy teaching was good. I didn’t think an audio lecture could be so interesting.
Why do I bother with these lectures? Well, some may say I have nothing better to do. (They would be right to some extent, by the way.) Actually, I take my job seriously and If my job’s going to be teaching, I’m determined to make it as good as I can. These lectures are a great way of learning how to interact with a class and to learn new ways of conveying ideas. I’ve already learned a lot from SICP and I’m learning every day from Linear Algebra and Differential Geometry.
So please, stop calling me a nut. *sob*
