- Lectures will be delivered via Zoom Webinars, at the scheduled time (MWF 2:30pm PDT, GMT-7)
- You are welcome to participate in live lectures via the Zoom links provided on Canvas. Students will be able to ask questions during lecture, which will be moderated by members of the course staff.
- If you able to participate in the live lecture, there will also be a short 10-15 minute Zoom meeting hosted after class every day, where you can come and ask the course staff questions about the recently concluded lecture. Zoom links to these meetings are also provided on the course Canvas page.
- You are also welcome to watch lectures at any time after the scheduled time. We are working on ensuring that the lecture videos are posted soon after each class ends.
Common questions about lectures
What tools will I need?
If you want to watch the video live, you should be able to use Zoom in some form or another. It would be best to have a video feed if watching live. I.e., calling in from your phone would work, but seeing the slides and code in real-time is going to be beneficial. If you must call in, you should also try to have the slides up on your computer at the same time. Alternatively, you can download the videos after the class ends, and watch them without an Internet connection.
How can I ask a question on a Webinar?
You can pose questions using the Zoom Q&A feature, which will be moderated by the members of the course staff that are not lecturing.
What if I live in a time zone such that is inconvenient to watch the class live?
You can download the videos to watch at any time after the class meeting time (after we have posted them).
Can I run code examples myself?
Yes – we will either have a Qt project for you to download, or you should be able to keep a blank project open in Qt and type the code as we do. In general, we advise against doing this during class, but if you are watching the video and want to pause the video to test the code, that would work well.
