What the lab provides:
How labs work
- A machine to be used during the labs.
- Basic software for installation of FreeBSD.
The expected lab work will be available several days (day of?) prior
to the actual lab. There will be some labs in which students will be
required to do work (research) outside of lab hours. For these
cases, it is expected that students obtain swipe access to the lab.
- Labs will be assigned on a weekly bases with tasks to preform.
A guaranteed work period of 1 1/2 hrs is given each week. It is
expected that students use their own time outside of lab to
complete the tasks.
- At the start of each subsequent lab during the work period,
the instructor will verify completion.
- Once verified a participation mark is awarded.
