Course materials



  • To submit homework assignments, please use the address Also please use this address for private questions to Ken or Greg about course-related matters.  This helps ensure a timely response because we both will see it.
  • Please remember to check this web site often for updates, and use the reload command on your browser to ensure that you are receiving the most up-to-date information.  
  • Important note: Learning design skills is often best done in a group setting, where problems that arise during the design process are discussed in a studio setting.   Part of class time will be devoted to discussing design problems that you are finding in doing homework assignments, so please bring partial solutions and ideas to discuss to class.  It will save time if you bring in your code on a floppy disk, USB flash memory or CD rather than relying on network connections, so we can look at it together on-screen.
  • If we need to pass out restricted-distribution materials, we will use Northwestern's Blackboard course management system.  Otherwise, we'll use the more accessible and straightforward media detailed above.
