This set of videos (and audio) will help you get to know 3040 and Beyond a bit better. From understanding the high points of the syllabus to taking a look around our course resources and technologies, your intro to class is all here.
There’s about 2 hours of material to consume here, so you’ll probably need to do this in more than one sitting. Typically these lectures will not be so long, but this is a comprehensive “boot camp” in getting acquainted with our class.
After you get through the material, please head down to the comments section to ask a question. I will answer around 24 hours after the due date. Try to ask a question no one else has asked. Or if you need additional clarification for a similar question, you may ask that.
You are required to know all of the information in this lecture, so please pay attention carefully and take notes when needed.
Syllabus Audio (50 minutes)
I’ve created audio here, rather than a video so that you can listen while you do laundry, eat a snack or whatever, given the length of the track. Usually our audio/videos will not be so long, but the syllabus needs special attention.
