1.3 Lab work this week

Students may attend any of the four CST8207 lab sections if there is space. If you miss your scheduled lab period, come to one of the other ones. See the timetable here and on the Course Home Page:

Your course work for most of the term will be done by Remote Login to a Course Linux Server (CLS) machine using your Algonquin userid (the same userid that you use for Blackboard) and a special CLS server password (not your Blackboard password) that you must get from your instructor. See the connection information in Course Linux Server and work with your instructor during lab time if you have problems connecting to the server.

  1. First Midterm test: 45 minutes; in lecture class noon Friday in Week 5 (Feb 12)
  2. Second Midterm test: 45 minutes; in lecture class noon Friday in Week 9 (Mar 18)

Tests take place in class in your one-hour lecture hour, not in your lab period.
