Seminars & Workshops

The LRC's Spring 2017 CSE 101 Workshops!

LAST CSE 101Taking CSE 101 this semester? Want to keep up with each week's assignment? Of COURSE you do! The Learning Resources Center will have special workshops on Mondays and Wednesdays from January 23 through April 24, 2017. Please note these are NOT "tutoring sessions" or official "CSE Helprooms" (though we encourage you to make the most of both those resources); our LRC Facilitators go through examples of the green-background material you will be working on during the current week, so please BRING QUESTIONS!

End of Semester Reminder

Enhancing Academic Success and Integrity

  • The good folks of your Associated Students of MSU put together an excellent, informative video on the "Spartan Code of Honor"! [opens a new window]
  • Additionally, here are some really helpful and handy "Tips to Avoid Academic Dishonesty" useful for this class and many others! PDF

But Wait ... There's More!

Have an Apple iOS device (iPad, iPod, iPhone) and not sure what to think about—or how to use—the new "iOS 10 Operating System"? Have an Apple Macintosh device (iMac, MacBook/Pro/Air, or a Mac Pro) running "Sierra" (macOS 10.12), "El Capitan" (macOS 10.11), "Yosemite" (macOS 10.10), "Mavericks" (macOS 10.9), or "Mountain Lion" (macOS 10.8) Operating System and wondering what the hubub is about?

Have one or more of those gizmos ... but NO IDEA WHAT ANY OF THAT CRAY-CRAY SOUNDING STUFF MEANS?


We can have seminars so you may learn more about these Apple computery thingies, plus you can make an appointment anytime with the LRC's Technology Literacy Specialist!

Why? Because it all gets so much easier when you know just a little more. You don't have to be an expert to increase your personal productivity. We can show you how to make your OS or iOS devices totally sing and dance! (Figuratively, that is. NOTE: your Apple device is not able to sing and dance. Yet.) Contact the LRC's Technology Literacy Specialist right away! Total n00bs and devoted AppleHeads alike are welcomed ... as are our Unix-using, Linux-loving, and PC-devoted friends!

Too slowly?

Don't forget the terrific CSE 101 Help Rooms (linked on page 5 of your course info) by Computer Science and Engineering ... not to be confused with the Learning Resources Center's Workshops. (We do workshops, they do help rooms. Got it? ;-P)
