Cornell classes resume on Monday, April 6, with everybody working remotely.

For the rest of the semester, the goal is to complete and deliver your project. Because of the disruptions, you may need to revise the scope of the project, but otherwise the aims of the project are unchanged. Be sure to keep in close contact with your client.

  1. During the week after the spring break, I will speak to each project team for about twenty minutes by conference call or video conference. This will be quite informal. I want to check that you are in communication with each other and with your client, and that you have a good plan to complete the project. Please send me suggested times that are convenient for you and tell me the communications technology that we will use. I am quite open from 8:30 to 5:00, April 6 through April 10.

  2. Survey 3 is due on Friday, April 10 at 11:00 p.m.

  3. Final presentations will take place at the scheduled times, but will be entirely online. Be sure to schedule your presentations as soon as possible. A new web page has been created with tips for online presentations and meetings. It is 'Projects' -> 'Online presentations'.

  4. The Final Delivery and Survey 4 are due on Thursday, May 14, at 11:00 p.m. as previously scheduled.


The final grade for the course will be based on the project and the individual contribution to the project.

A good grade on Test 1 may be used to raise somebody's final grade, but nobody will be penalized for having done badly on Test 1.
