I sincerely enjoyed working with you all this semester. I know this course has been challenging, in particular after moving online, and I appreciate all your hard work and understanding throughout the process. I hope you found the course useful and continue learning how to use your computer to engage with data. I have a few administrative announcements to wrap up the semester:
Have a great break!
- Dr. Maczka
Review your scheduled time to take the final. You may freely select any of the three available sections up until the first day of exams.
At the start of your exam time, join the EF 105 Zoom meeting for assistance getting started. You may close zoom once you are confident you are off to a good start. Rejoin if needed for clarification questions or help getting files submitted.
While we are still finalizing details regarding the structure of EF 105 after Spring Break, one thing you can do now to prepare is to make sure you can run MATLAB and access the files on your H-drive from your personal computer. As a fall-back, I encourage you to save a copy of your current H-drive files to a flash drive, email it to yourself, or to another cloud storage option such as Google Drive that you already know how to access from your own computer.
The easiest way to run MATLAB on your own computer is remotely via apps.utk.edu. If you access MATLAB this way, it will also automatically see your H-drive from within the application. You can access any of your H-drive files using MATLAB's file browser.
If you are running a version of MATLAB that you installed locally on your computer, you will need to take additional steps to access the files on your H-drive. Instructions are linked on the OIT Resources page of the EF105 website. Note that for off-campus access you will also need to follow the linked instructions to set up a VPN connection.
Please seek help early if you are having difficulty accessing either MATLAB or your H-drive files on your own computer.
