Other Information:

In this course, we will use Gradescope for assignment submission and grading. You will be required to give consent to use this platform, which will be obtained the first week of class. If you do not consent, you will need to contact course staff to arrange an alternative method of assignment submission and grading.

This classroom is equipped with Echo360 lecture recording, and it will be used to record and store the course lectures. These recordings are intended to only capture the instructor, but may also capture student audio participation or those who get in frame. These lectures will be edited and released on Moodle within a few days of their recording. If you have any concerns, please contact the instructor.
