COMP2110 is taught mainly through online notes and video presentations with a one hour lecture. Each week a number of video presentations will be made available on iLearn, you should watch these and follow up on the topics covered before the lecture. The lecture will recap some of the video content and provide a forum for discussion of the topics of the week, as well as preview the video content in the following week.
You will also have a two-hour workshop each week in the computer laboratory. This will be used as a combined tutorial and practical class, with tasks each week to engage you in the topics we are discussing. The workshops give you a chance to talk over any problems with your tutor. There will be a checkpoint task each week for you to complete in the workshop, you must do this in the workshop and show your tutor the result.
Since your tutor will be keeping track of your marks, you should attend the workshop that you enroll in. If you do need to change, make sure your tutor and the tutor in the new class agree.
There is no required text for COMP2110. We have written a set of notes for the unit which will be added to through the semester. You can find them here:
We will also provide notes, slides and links to other resources each week. It is important that you follow up links provided with the video presentations and in the notes on each topic.
