Please meet with each other final project group before next class. Find out what their project is about, how they are developing it, and answer the following questions about each of their projects. Post your individual answers to these questions to your own blog, clearly identifying which project group you are talking about.
- Have you done any code, circuitry, or parts that are relevant to their project and can be shared/given/loaned?
- What are the interactions that their project affords, and do those interactions seem intuitive from a user-perspective?
- How would you recommend making the interactions more intuitive
- What do you like most about their project, and why?
- What do you like least about their project, and why?
- What changes/additions would make their idea better, in your opinion?
The other groups are by no means obligated to follow your advice.
We will have a quiz on Monday, April 26.
The quiz may include any material that was covered in class or assignments before the date of our first Quiz.
The answer key to the first quiz is posted here.
We will have a quiz on Monday, February 21.
Quiz may include material covered in:
- Ohm’s Law calculations
- Kirkhoff’s Law (i.e. what it means for components to drop voltage)
- Voltage Divider circuits
- Basic usage of electronic components we have used so far
- Basic usage of sensors we have seen, including variable resistors
- Basic usage of Arduino features we have encountered so far
- Any and all lab questions
- Any and all assigned readings
- Any and all lecture notes
If you feel you need help understanding this material, see me during office hours and/or see the tutors during tutoring hours and/or post questions to the email discussion list to get help from fellow students.
You can use a blog aggregator to read all students’ blogs through a single unified interface, so you don’t have to visit each person’s blog individually.
To do that, download this ZIP file. When you unzip it, you will see that it contains an XML file. Import this XML file to your blog aggregator of choice, et voila.
If you’re not familiar with blog aggregators, follow these steps:
- Download this ZIP file to your computer. Then go find the file on your hard drive and unzip it. You will see that it contains an XML file.. this is the file you need from now on.
- Go to Google Reader and log in. Google Reader is a blog aggregator.
- Once logged in to Google Reader, click the “Reader settings” link that shows up when you click the gear icon on the right side of the page.
- On the Settings page that comes up, click the “Import/Export” tab.
- Where it says “Select an OPML file:” browse for the XML file you downloaded in Step 1. Then click “Upload” to finish the import.
And Bob’s your uncle. Now when you go to the Google Reader home page, you should see all the blog posts from everyone in the class in one big list. If your blog is not listed there, please email the address to me.
