Online Support

Edit Online Support Content

Students will be able to receive online help for laboratory practical work (including verification) and the Project.

Manuals of course notes are provided as PDFs available in Moodle. The course notes are by no means comprehensive. You are expected to find any additional relevant material (e.g. online help, examples from the Internet, reference books) yourself.

Students should be checking Moodle on a regular basis (at least twice a week). Announcements will be made weekly, lecture notes posted, and materials made available via the COMPX161 Moodle page. Students are expected to check their email regularly. Student queries can be posted via the Moodle forums.

Students can also email the tutor. All emails should have the paper number (COMPX161) in the subject line. We aim to answer email within one business day. When using Moodle messages to contact tutors ensure you mention COMPX161 in the message text (as Moodle does not do this automatically).
