The exit survey is online, at surveymonkey.com. Here is the link : Exit Survey
We're asking ALL students to visit this URL and either complete the survey, or click the "Decline to participate" button (and enter your name, university, and course number on the next page of the survey). You do NOT have to complete the actual survey if you choose not to participate (but we would very much appreciate it if you would do so, if you are at least 18 and therefore eligible). However, you DO have to visit the URL and explicitly decline if you want to "opt out."
Please also note (as it explains on the first page of the survey) that your name will NOT be associated with your answers -- when we download the data, we'll only use your name to determine who's responded, and to associate your answers from the survey at the start of the semester with your answers at the end.
Students are not to use ITE 240 without a TA present. When the 201 TAs leave, you MUST leave. Also, it is NEVER OK to be loud, prop the door open, or bother students from other classes who are using the lab.
I understand that on Friday, 11/21, 201 students were actually demanding that the seniors working in that lab help them with their project 4. Those seniors were in that lab to do their own work, and some of you were keeping them from working on their own projects. May I remind you that obtaining help from other than 201 staff and the CSHC & LRC tutors is against the rules of this class and is considered academic misconduct.
When: Wednesday, October 8th, 12-1 PM Where: Lecture Hall 7For more information, visit Working From Home.

To: email@example.com Subject: [Csee-undergrad-cs] Game designer Sid Meier to talk in Baltimore Professor Mark Olano posted news on the UMBC GAIM blog  that legendary game designer Sid Meier  will give a presentation for the Baltimore ACM chapter  at 8:00pm on Thursday, September 4th. The talk, which is free and open to the public, will be held a the The Engineering Society of Baltimore  in Baltimore. Meier is an influential figure in the game industry and helped to establish the popular simulation game genre through his games like Pirates, Railroad Tycoon and Civilization. He is currently Director of Creative Development for Firaxis Games and has been inducted into the Computer Museum of America Hall of Fame and the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame for lifetime achievement in computer gaming. Here's the title and abstract for his talk. Game Programming: Oh say, can you C? Sid Meier and members of the Firaxis development team Programming a computer game: There are three types of programming in games: (1) game play on one end, (2) engine on the other, and (3) the layer in between that allows the two others to communicate. Each type of programming is different from the others. Programmers are drawn to one or another type of programming because of its power or beauty. Sid has developed a flexible style of programming that allows him to make instantaneous changes at the game play level. An engine programmer needs a bit more conformity to step in where someone else left off. The programmers in the middle have fun because they can make the other two "worlds" talk to each other. Sid and other speakers will discuss the different types of programming and how they "play nice" together. I~Rve attended talks at the Engineering Society building, which is on Mt. Vernon Place in Baltimore, and should be easy to get to on the MTA bus that stops at UMBC. It~Rs a grand old building that was fun to be in. If you plan to attend, email firstname.lastname@example.org for further announcements and updates.  http://gaim.umbc.edu/news/2008/08/21/sid-meier-talk-for-baltimore-acm/  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sid_Meier  http://balto.acm.org/  http://www.esb.org/
