EF 230 Help

Most assignments are due one week after being assigned; start early so you can maximize the available resources like help sessions and instructor assistance. Do not presume that instructor's will be at your disposal on assignment due dates.

Help is available in the following ways:

Help sessions

Homework and Project help sessions will be offered. Time and location will be posted on the course website announcements.

Discussion board

Post questions on the discussion board and they should get answered within a few hours. The instructor and TAs monitor the board, and other students are encouraged to help out as well. You can sign up to automatically receive all discussion board notices from the discussion board link. You can upload your program to the dropbox or homework notes box and the TAs and instructors can view it. You should not post large amounts of code directly on the discussion board.

Perkins 212 Study Room and Perkins 208 EF Computer Lab

The Perkins 212 EF study room and Perkins 208 Computer Labs are open all day for student use. Students are encouraged to meet and help each other in these locations.

By appointment

Contact the instructor or a GTA to schedule a time to meet to go over your specific question(s).


The discussion board is a better option for general questions. If you have a personal or sensitive question you can and should use email. Indicate "EF 230" in the subject line.
