Agenda for Week 6

Review

What is the attendance/grading policy for this class?

  • Let’s look at the Syllabus.
  • Originally: 4 absences is an automatic withdrawal. Several of you would be withdrawn.
  • There is no difference between an excused absence and an absence. Sickness, etc. is absence. Be here.
  • Presence and participation is 20% of your grade. Having the work in on time and being able to defend it on the presentation day is key.
  • As always: Each project/presentation is also 20% of your grade.

Tell me about your progress in Dreamweaver demos by explaining something (anything) you learned there.

Show me your USB keys.
