Lectures

All COMP1720 lectures will be streamed online in Semester 2, 2020. We use Microsoft Teams as a central place to watch lectures and ask questions in real-time. Check out our online lectures and labs page to see how to watch them.

There are two weekly lecture slots for this course:

  • Wednesday 2pm-3pm (online)
  • Friday 3pm-4pm (online)

Typically, Charles Martin will give a lecture on Wednesday (2-3pm, and Tony Curran will give one Friday (3-4pm). They might switch things up and both lecture on Friday (3-5pm), or swap in some other way, we can be flexible since we’re online. If you miss the lecture, don’t worry, they will be available online shortly after the lecture slots.

The lecture slides for this course are a website1—what else would you expect from this course? So you can just click on each week’s lecture slides in the sidebar/hamburger menu as usual, and you should probably know about the keyboard shortcuts for navigating the slides:

  • or space to go forward one slide
  • or shift+space to go back one slide
  • o to toggle 2D overview mode (then use arrow keys to find the slide you’re looking for)
  • f to toggle fullscreen mode

If you have any accessibility issues with the slides then please let me know.

Watch lectures live

Lectures can be viewed live right in Microsoft Teams where you will also be able to chat in the General channel during lectures.

You can also watch the lectures in these places:

Only the chat on Microsoft Teams will be monitored during lectures!

Lecture Recordings

Lecture Recordings are stored on Microsoft Stream (link), and Echo 360 (link) after each lecture.

These platforms both support captions and speed control.

Lecture PDF files

PDF files of lectures will be uploaded to CloudStor (link) after the lectures take place. If they haven’t shown up for a few days after the lecture, feel free to remind me on discourse.

Inside the Artist’s Studio

This year in COMP1720 we’re privileged to have a bunch of code artists stop by to chat about their work & the process behind it in the video series, COMP1720: Inside the Artist’s Studio. There’s some more info in the FAQ.
