Title: Welcome to MAT244-2013 Fall forum
Post by: Victor Ivrii on September 11, 2013, 01:41:29 PM
Welcome to this course forum.

It runs in conjunction with this course website. More permanent and systematic information is placed on website, while forum is for discussion. Please read before registering!

You can select any username (login) you want (take a rather short one). Username is what only you (and Admins) can see.
 
However  change your (screen) Name  (the one which everybody sees) to one easily identifiable (Admins should be able to identify you with a student enrolled to this course--and matching BlackBoard name; otherwise your posting privileges could be reduced or revoked):  Open Profile > Account Settings and look for "Name".

It would be preferable to use your University of Toronto email address.

BTW you can have a cool avatar too. Please do not display any confidential info.

You cannot change the loginname (used for login).  But there is no need.  Nobody except you knows your password - even Admins - but Admins don't need  to know it.

Some forum rules

Karma
Useful posts are rewarded by Karma which later translates to Bonus points (in the final mark).

Have questions?
If you have a question which you think is of general interest—ask it here rather than via email.

MathJax
This forum (and website) use MathJax (http://www.math.toronto.edu/courses/mat244h1/20139/about_mathjax.html) to display mathematics. However hooking MathJax broke preview in many browsers (but not in Safari, Chrome or other WebKit based browsers). Still, you can always modify your post.

Blackboard
Blackboard https://portal.utoronto.ca/ (https://portal.utoronto.ca/),  will be used only for marks, occasionally for copies of  the important announcements and emails.
