Room change for Information Systems module

We have received complaints about room KA-3-021 as the air conditioning unit is very noisy so Information Systems on Monday and the Work Placement class on Tuesday are in the process of being moved to different rooms.

This impacts the new DT265 students, the  DT265B class and the Fundamentals of Computing stream on the International PreMasters (DT890).

Please check the timetables before going to these classes next week.

Systems Analysis and Testing Monday Lecture

From Monday September 29th 2014 we will start to operate the tutorial from 18.00 to 18.30 in KA-G-028.

In order to manage the content, if you wish to have something addressed during this session please make a post to the Problem Page (available in the Webcourses module).
Each Monday I will deal with anything that has been posted to this page before 5 pm on Friday of the previous week. So for this week, please post before 5 pm Friday 26th September.
If nothing is posted on the problem page, then I will have to assume that no tutorial is required for the following Monday.

I will make a set of material available in Webcourses to support those who can't make the tutorial  and if you have any additional questions please come and talk to me during the lab class.

The lecture portion of the class will start at 18.30.

Lab Groups For Sept 14 Cohort
