Root View: Course Components Syllabus
The course syllabus establishes course policies on grading, attendance, and exams. The syllabus should be read in detail at beginning semester. Calendar
The course calendar provides a detailed temporal view of the course, including lecture coverage, assignments, and due dates. The calendar will be updated regularly. Lectures
Lectures are in the form of a slide show with an accompanying narrative. (Click "Narrative on" to see the narrative. Click "Frames[Windows]" to toggle between displaying the narrative in a separate frame or a separate resizeable window.) Lectures provide a compact view of the important topics of the course, while the textbook and reading assignments provide more detail. Lecture slides and narrative will be created "on the fly" during the semester, so you should visit them regularly. Report bugs/corrections in the appropriate Blackboard discussion forum. Assignments Assignments will be released through the Calendar. See also Submitting Assignments (below) and Grading Assignments. My FSU

Unix Script Submission Process:
Most programming assignments will be submitted via a specific Unix script from your CS Majors account logged in to shell.cs.fsu.edu. The submission script for a particular assignment will be located in the assignment distribution directory.
Submission via script should generate two email responses:
- When your submission is received, a receipt is sent via email. The date/time stamp of this email is the official submission time.
- After your submission has been unpacked and placed in your portfolio, a second message is sent containing a copy of all files that were unpacked. This is a record of exactly what was received and placed in your portfolio.
After submission, be sure to check your email for these two messages. Normally these would arrive within a few seconds of submission. If you do not get both email responses, a malfunction occurred. When you do receive these confirmation emails, save them. If a problem were to arise with your files, these emails are your proof of submission.
Note that revisions may be submitted any time prior to the deadline and will automatically replace the previous submission.
