Spring 2013 courses:

 

CS/SE 3376.001 C/C++ Programming in UNIX environment

 

This 100% online course! This online course is provided to help you manage timing conflicts with other courses; Do not take it just to escape from the lectures! Course requirements for this online course will be more rigorous compared to classroom course.

 

New to online courses? Do a web-search on "how to succeed in online courses" to learn more, before registering for this course. Online courses are NOT for every one! You need to be a self-starter and highly motivated person to do well in online courses. Doing well in on-ground classes do NOT automatically translate to “doing well in online courses”. Specifically, every student is expected to discuss meaningfully in the online classroom.

Fall 2013 courses: 

                  

For all courses, previous edition of the respective textbooks should work as well. Also, students regularly ask me whether they really need to purchase the textbook. It really depends on your learning style. If you are the type of person who hates to miss out on any details, buying textbook is a good idea. On the other hand, it is possible to do well in courses utilizing the lecture notes & web resources. If you need to refer to the textbook occasionally, you can come during my office hours or borrow it from your friends.
