2007-06-01 Course evaluation. Please fill the anonymous course evaluation. The evaluation is anonymous and the purpose is to give feedback so we can improve the course.

 

2007-05-25 Final deadline for all documents is June 1st 9:15! Make sure all docs are checked in by then. After that we will look at them in order to grade the projects.

 

2007-05-25 Remember that June 1st is mandatory for everyone! If you for some reason cannot attend June 1st, contact Rikard beforehand to arrange a way to compensate for this.

 

2007-05-23 Detailed schedule for the final presentation available! See the projects page (a bit down the page).

 

2007-05-23 Don’t forget to register for the exam! You do that on the Student Portal, https://portal.mdh.se/student/. You must register at latest 6 days before the exam. (The info in old news below about literature still apply.)

 

2007-05-23 Do you want to earn 5 more credits during summer? You have the opportunity to continue with developing/finishing the robots after the SE course ends in the form of a summer course. Ask Lars for more info.

 

2007-04-19 Exam solutions available. These can be found on the examination page.

 

2007-04-12 Exams corrected! You will soon receive your results and can then get your exam at the IDE reception. We will put suggested answers on the examination page during next week.

 

2007-03-26 Hope you all succeeded on the exam! If you haven’t done so already, please fill the anonymous course evaluation while this part of the course is still fresh in mind.

 

2007-03-21 About literature on the exam. Note that all written material is allowed, such as text books, printout of lecture slides, old exams (and solutions), and your own notes and laborations of course. (This means that the questions on the exams are not of the form “explain a simple term” – which you can simply look up – but you will rather be asked to apply your knowledge to examples, such as in questions of the form “given this example project, plan it according to development model X and create a Gantt chart” or “create a statechart diagram for the following system” etc. You may then look up details about e.g. syntax in the literature.)

 

2007-03-21 And don’t forget to fill the half-time course evaluation!

 

2007-03-14 Solutions to homeworks. As requested, you may find the homework solutions presented in the class on the homeworks page. (You might want to have a look at the calculations of execution time and memory consumption in homework 7, something I totally forgot at the lecture.) Thanks to all of you who contributed in this way, and also to you others who submitted solutions (and got some points for that)!

 

2007-03-13 Half-time course evaluation. Please fill the anonymous course evaluation while you have the first part of the course fresh in mind. The evaluation is anonymous and the purpose is to give feedback so we can improve the course.

 

2007-03-12 Extended deadline for homework 4, 6, and 7. You have until Wednesday March 14th at 8:00 in the morning to submit the homeworks we did not present during today’s lecture! See more details on the homeworks page.

 

2007-03-12 Change in schedule next week. The extra lecture that will introduce you into the project technical environment is on Wednesday March 21st.

 

2007-03-05 Detailed schedule for the last lectures & lessons. Tuesday 6th we have lesson as usual, and on Wednesday 7th we have a guest lecture as announced. Monday 12th and Wednesday 13th we will do exercises in the class room (see homeworks page for more details). Most important: the “lesson” on Tuesday 13th is mandatory, because the project tasks will be introduced and the project groups will be formed. There will also be a lecture on 19th that will introduce you into the environment you will work in during the projects.

 

2007-02-27 Remember to register for the exam! You do that on the Student Portal, https://portal.mdh.se/student/. You must register at latest 6 days before the exam.

 

2007-02-15 Web site updated. There are now instructions for assignments, including voluntary home works which can give you bonus points on the exam (just like the labs). The study instructions have been improved, which will hopefully help you to study efficiently. The grading system has also been clarified (the connection between homeworks and laborations, the exam, and the project).

 

2007-02-12 Next three lectures are held by Kristian, and please observe that they will be 3 hours each (look at the schedule for the times).

 

2007-01-31 Assignments to be solved as preparation for Monday’s (Feb 5th) discussion are now available here. Study them in connection with the course literature and the ordinary lecture slides. They are not mandatory or graded in any way, but are there to help you learn – first from doing them and then discuss them with the teacher and other students. Your ideas, solutions, and opinions will form the basis of Monday’s “lecture” – without your preparations, there will be no lecture!

 

2007-01-30 Rikard’s voice recovers very slowly. Many thanks to Ivica and Frank for their help with lectures and lessons! Wednesday’s lecture (Jan 31st) is cancelled. On Monday (Feb 5th), I will use my voice as little as possible; I plan to have some assignments and discussions. To be able to this efficiently, please study the material about design, lecture 4-5 on the lectures page (both the slides and text book) and monitor this page for more preparation material. We will see later in the course if we need to make further changes to the schedule – if there are problems for anyone to extend the lectures to 3 hours, please tell me as soon as possible.

 

2007-01-23 Rikard has lost his voice. Important info:

1) Tomorrow’s lecture (24th) is cancelled.

2) The lab instructions are on the web, but if his voice holds Rikard will be in the lab tomorrow (24th) at 13:15 and introduce the report writing task in lab 1.

3) To make up for the lost lecture, we add an hour to the lecture on Monday 29th, the lecture will be 13:15-16:00. We will see later in the course if we need to make further changes to the schedule.
