It is due by: Monday, november 28-th 2016 at 23:59:59.

What to do: In the lessons from Tuesday, November 8-th 2016 at 11:30 to Tuesday, November 22-th 2016 at 12:30 we have covered the II topic of this course (theory on automatic communication). So, you will be divided into the following three groups:

  • group C: all and only the students whose last name is, in alphabetical order, between the string "MENNB" and "Z";

and each sudent group will be associated with one of the following three parts of this course II topic; as follows.

  1. Part 1 of course II topic - group A:
    1. Audio 2-nd part of Tuesday, November 8-th 2016 from 11:30 to 12:30,
    2. Audio 1-th part of Wensday, November 9-th 2016,
    3. Audio 2-nd part of Wensday, November 9-th 2016,
    4. Audio 1-th part of Thursday, November 10-th 2016;
    5. Audio 2-nd part of Thursday, November 10-th 2016,
  2. Part 2 of course II topic - group B:

    3. Audio 1-th part of Tuesday, November 22-th 2016,
    4. Audio 2-nd part of Tuesday, November 22-th 2016.

Each student must process a course II topic part as follows.

  1. Find his/her own group among the groups A, B or C; and hence, find the part, among 1, 2 or 3, he/she must process. The processing consists in the following.
  2. Based on the above podcasting, write the notes (obviously, in english) of the part that pertains him/her. Please, develop the concepts I might have only sketched.
  3. Submit the notes into my site by logging in and submitting an article (with the USER MENU link "Submit Mid-term 2"). Note that with the "Show mid-term 2 articles" you can re-edit your own article as many times as you like. So you can actually work directly on my site.
  4. Realize the "Notes on Automatic Communication" collaboratively with Google Drive. Each student will choose a topic at will among the content he/she has processed in the previous points and develop it in the Google Doc shared file "Notes on Automatic Communication" (even 10 rows are enough). Each student is free to do whatever he/she wants on the file. In particular, the student is also free to modify/improve content written by others (however, I would suggest you to make arrangements to resolve conflicts). To go to the file you can click on "notes on Automatic Communication". Note that, if a student does not have already the sharing permission, the first time he/she will be asked to request it to me (the file owner).

For grading what you have done, I will take into considerations

  1. the english;
  2. how you developed the various concepts;
  3. the html code of your submitted article. I want clean html psudo-code. Clean means only useful code. As I told You, myself 95% of the times I don't use the WYSIWYG editor but only use the source code editor and edit directly the html psudo-code. For example of clean code please see the source code of my articles (even the present one);
  4. the overall result. The articles must look nice (I repeat, please see how I write).

Good work and Good luck !!
