* 12.03 - in the Friday evening, during reading the Estonian-language course works, something happened to the Nabble n8 server that accommodates the forums of both courses (the Nabble main site is up).

The lecture was initially scheduled for Wednesday, January 27 noon at ICO-316, but will be cancelled as the university is still in the 'distance mode'.  Please see the course guide (link above) and ask questions over e-mail if anything is still unclear. Also, please register yourself (and your blogs) at the Participants' page (link above).
* 25.01 - The usual kick-off meeting goes virtual in Spring 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The course information will also be e-mailed to the students who have registered for the course in the ÕIS (study information system) by now.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: Where can I find the weekly blogging tasks?
  • A: At the end of each weekly text ("Study & Write")
  • Q: Where can I find the weekly points?
  • A: This is agreed upon at the kick-off meeting in every course. Check the broadcast and/or the recording, or failing that, ask from the lecturer (over e-mail).
  • Q: I have zero points for the Week X, but I did write something!
  • A: Any sensible on-topic post with meaningful volume (i.e. longer than 1-2 sentences) will not receive zero points - therefore, please send an e-mail to the supervisor and let him know. It is probably his mistake (unfortunately it sometimes happens during large courses and workloads) and will be fixed ASAP.
  • Q: I have less points than usual for the Week X!
  • A: The problem is not in the 'wrong' answer. Less points is a signal about the work being either a) clearly too short, b) notably badly written, or c) submitted well over the deadline.
  • Q: I would like to write my paper on the topic X, but it's already taken!
  • A: In general, the topical areas of the course are large enough. So, as long as you don't pick exactly the same title and shift the angle a bit, it should be fine. Still, it is recommended to contact the lecturer and ask over to be sure.
