1.3 Lab work this weekIndexup to index

The first week of classes is broken up by Labour Day on Monday, College Orientation on Tuesday, and CST Orientation during part of Thursday.

The interruptions mean that many students will not have CST8207 lab sections scheduled this week. Students in the missing sections can attend any of the other lab sections if there is space. See the list of lab sections on the Course Home Page or see these two timetables:

Your course work for most of the term will be done by Remote Login to a Course Linux Server (CLS) machine using your Algonquin userid (the same userid that you use for Blackboard) and a special CLS server password (not your Blackboard password) that you must get from your instructor. See the connection information in Course Linux Server and work with your instructor during lab time if you have problems connecting to the server.
