What's New (August 1998)
August 25, 1998
I have posted URLs for the readings for Week 2. Both of these documents exist in HTML form only, so I decided to just link to them rather than print them. Both should print okay, but you should probably fiddle with the display settings in your Web browser (using the override document settings preference) to get the documents into reasonable size font for paper. I would also recommend only printing one or two pages at first to make sure they are coming out okay before printing the entire document. NOTE: These papers are not short, so you may want to get a head start on them this weekend.
Hardcopies of the papers are now available in the Class Handouts filing cabinet outside ECOT 717. Look for the unlabelled folder in the top drawer and be sure to get a copy of both of the papers. See the papers page for the names of the papers you need to read this week.
I have added a section listing the outside readings for the class. You can download the PDF version of the papers from that page. I should have extra hard copies of the papers available outside Office 717 in the Class Handouts cabinet later this afternoon.
I have learned more about the state of the class with respect to enrollement. It appears that I can only have a maximum of 56 students in the class and I must give preference to those people on the waiting list before admitting others. I will post more information on this later today or tomorrow.

I have added a link to the lectures page. Lectures will be made available in two formats, HTML and PDF. Use the PDF version to print out the slides for class, if you want. To save on paper, the PDF version has been printed with four slides per page. You can retreive the free Acrobat Reader from Adobe's website in order to view and print the PDF files.

I modified the Course Assessment page in response to a concern raised by a student who is also working full-time. The reading critiques will now be due on Sunday night rather than Friday night to allow for the work to be done on the weekend.
The class website is taking shape. The home page will serve as a "What's New" Page for the class. Check back here for the latest news concerning the class. Other sections include contact information for myself and the TA, a course schedule (that serves as the course syllabus), information about the textbook, and the grading criteria for the class.
Still to come: A course overview, a section for students to contribute links and comments about the class, and the course lectures.
