Hi all,

Apologies for the difficulties joining the Zoom meetings. I posted the passwords, here:
so hopefully we won't run into this issue again.

The workshop is on tomorrow as per normal.

Other announcements: 

# Website outage

The has been a partial, and ongoing outage of the server hosting the CITS5501 material. I'll post Google 
Drive links to the lecture notes shortly so anyone affected can access them.

# Exam format

The CITS5501 exam will be conducted using Examplify, and will be open book. As a class, we will be 
reviewing the unit content, and going over practice exam questions, in the last week of semester, so there 
will be an opportunity to see the typical format of an exam question and to raise any queries.

The university will also schedule a mock exam, so you can ensure the software works, before the day of the 

However, if you do not have access to suitable hardware and software for running Examplify, note that you 
can request access to a loan device from the University: see the Exam FAQ entry here:

Also, as per the Vice-Chancellor's email of 20 April, any student has the opportunity to opt out of using 
Examplify either before or after they test the program with a mock exam, should they have unresolved 
concerns about the software.

In this case, I will if possible schedule an alternative assessment. The replacement assessment is part 
oral, part written. The oral portion will be conducted over Zoom and will involve answering questions 
about course content and elaborating on written answers.

# Project

The project should be available shortly - hopefully tomorrow.

# Previous workshop marks

Release of marks was delayed due to some students having extensions - these should be back shortly as 
well, in the next day or two.

As always, let me know if you have any queries, and take care.
