Due Wednesday, January 30
- Compose and send an e-mail message from
the WildcatsMail system that satisfies the following requirements:
- Include two addresses in the To: field of this
message (separated by a semicolon): the course submission address (email@example.com)
and your own e-mail address.
- In the Subject: field enter the text “IT403
Assign #1” (without the quotes) followed by your
first and last name.
- In the body of your message:
The body of your message must consist of at
least three paragraphs of at least three sentences
- introduce yourself and let me know by what name you prefer to be addressed;
- briefly describe what, if any, experience with you have with computers and/or networking; and
- tell me why you decided to take this course.
- Also in the body of your message, give me a
short “code word” that I can use in
posting grades online. I want to post grades online in such a way
that you’ll be able to identify your own but not anyone else’s.
I don’t want to use social security numbers (or even portions
of them) since that’s neither allowed nor appropriate. So
the best way to do this is to associate a code word with each student
and post grades by code word. Just pick something that you’ll
remember (and that’s in good taste ;-).
NOTE: Leave a blank line between paragraphs
to prevent certain e-mail systems from running your paragraphs together
into one. And if you wish to ask me questions or send a message that
otherwise requires a response, please do so separately from the assignment
submission. I generally do not read assignment submissions in depth
until I sit down to grade them sometime after the due date.
After sending your message, wait a few minutes until the copy of
the message you sent to yourself arrives in your inbox and then review
it to make sure it is complete.
NOTE: This part of the assignment must be
done using your UNH e-mail for full credit.
Go to the URL
and join this course on Piazza. Take a few minutes to explore Piazza. We will use Piazza as a place to post and answer questions throughout the semester. There is nothing more that you must do at this point, but any time you have a non-private, course-related question during the semester, check to see if it has already been answered on Piazza, and if not feel free to post it there instead of sending it to me via e-mail. I will post answers to Piazza questions as quickly as I am able, but feel free to post your own answers to classmates’ questions if you feel you can help.
