on Unix, pine, editing in pico and html page
creation for those who do not know this.
- Independent work on
creations, for those who do know
Unix, pine and html.
From now on, you will document your work in the lab via the
web and a short email message to Ileana (at
not any other address, not at firstname.lastname@example.org).
- The Web page report should be named labx.html
(where x is the name of the lab, e.g. 2, 3. etc.), should
be in your class account in the public_html directory,
be readable, and
The web report has to be started during the lab session on
Thursday and should contain at least a general description of
what you did by Friday night. You can however go back to it, add
finishing touches, perhaps better pictures, etc. and complete it
by the following Wednesday at 10pm.
- At least one picture of each mechanism or robot you have
built in the lab. If it is hard to see the design idea from one
picture, take several.
- A short description of how it was done and
what technique was used (e.g. what kind of gear mechanism,
reinforcement, sensors, etc.).
- If the design was inspired by someone
else's or if it was yours. Put links to web pages which provided
inspiration for the design.
- What works and what does not work.
- Thoughts you might have about making it work (according
to some specifications).
- The email report should be very brief (shouldn't take
more that 3 minutes to write!!) and
contain feedback for us about the lab:
The email report is due by Friday night.
- Was it too much? Just enough? You wanted more?
- Was it too open-ended? Too structured? Specify in what ways you think we
could have designed it better.
- Questions you didn't have time to ask during the lab.
- Topics you would like us to cover in class or next lab, that
we might have gone too fast over today.
