responsibility to anticipate and prevent data loss
Do not overtax the network
: Do not use the computer as a music player - either by playing a music CD or by streaming media through the network; it puts unnecessary wear and tear on the hardware and on the school's bandwidth
Do not MOVE or modify the hardware or software
Leave all cables and components as you find them
Do not modify desktop wallpaper or screen display unnecessarily
Never install or run non-academic software, including games or instant messaging utilities.
Respect your classmates
If you see another student has accidentally left their user account open, close it for them - they'll do the same for you.
Use earbuds to audit sound in your projects
NEVER do anything that might cause a student to lose their work
Intentional violation of these rules may result in the suspension or removal of a student's computer privileges.
Maintaining your computer privileges is essential to completing this course.
OCDSB Acceptable Use of Computers Rules
Read the AUP
Before you are allowed to use the school's computer network, you should be familiar with the AUP - Acceptable Use of Computers

Rules of Common Sense
If you know you are going to miss an upcoming class - it is your responsibility to:
Inform the instructor in advance
Have a classmate take notes for you on the day you miss class
Catch up on the missed work on your own time - Check this site for ongoing class notes
You can NOT expect to catch up DURING upcoming classes - you'll always remain a step behind. The solution is for you to GET CAUGHT UP on your OWN time, and be ready for new instruction!
Projects will be deadline driven. If a student is unable to complete a project by the prescribed deadline, they must make arrangements with the instructor to establish a reasonable alternative, and to make extra efforts to catch up to the rest of the class.
