Welcome to COMP1900 Introduction to Information Technology Applications - a course designed for students who wish to acquire computing skills to assist their studies and research. COMP1900 is not designed for students who wish to be employed in the Information Technology (IT) industry.
Information for this course will be available via the COMP1900 Web site at http://cs.anu.edu.au/student/comp1900. You are expected to check this web site regularly. If you don't have access to the Internet at home or work, make a regular time to access the web site in an ANU lab.
Lectures start in Teaching Week 1. Initially, there are two lectures per week - but because there are only twenty lectures during the semester, in some weeks there may be one or no lectures. See the Schedule of Labs and Lectures.
Lab Sessions start in Teaching Week 3. There are five assessable lab sessions plus one lab session (or lecture) in which the Group Assignment is marked - see the Schedule of Labs and Lectures. Students who do not attend lab sessions regularly may fail this course - see COMP1900 Website - Assessment.
A range of help is available to COMP1900 students, but remember that the university does not have the resources to provide individualised tuition to students on demand. Students are expected to learn as much as they can during regular contact hours and also to spend time in self-study.Top
