End of part 1 of the course

Hello all,

Just a quick message to tie up things at the end of this first semester together. I very much enjoyed listening to your presentations and looking at your PLEs on Monday and Wednesday - I hope you did too. I think you all did a very good job. The technicians are currently working on cutting up the video into single pieces that can be uploaded to YouTube. I'll let you know, obviously, when they're online. For those of you who couldn't make it, this will be an opportunity for you to see what you missed. Time permitting, you all will have the chance to do your presentations when we meet up again in February.

I hope that in the next few weeks, you still find the time to do some blogging, even if I won't be making you do it. It's a nice way to keep track of what's going on in everybody's lives.

Well, I can officially say I'm sick now too. Home, achy, fevery with a nasty cough. I'm feeling pretty miserable so I'm going to sign off now. I hope those of you who had the flu are feeling better and that I'll be feeling better soon.

Dear Sarah,
Thank you for everything you taught us. You gave us the wonderful opportunity to discover a lot of new technologies that can help us in both our academic studying and our life in general.
See you at the beginning of the second semester,

Hi Sarah,
thank you for the hours we spent together! I'm sure that in spring the course will be as interesting as it was in the first semester!
Since you taught at the Faculty of Engineering as well, I would like to ask your opinion about what has been happening to a friend of mine. In February 2007, he took Informatics exam: he didn't register it immediately because he wanted to get a better mark, but he didn't manage to prepare it again within September and decided to keep the mark he got in order to graduate in February 2008. However, it seems that his mark is no longer valid. Is the period of validity of the exam completely up to the professor? Or does it depend on what the Faculty has decided? I myself thought that a student could register a mark within a year since he took the exam. Is there a general rule about this issue?
Thank you for your kind attention, I hope you will recover soon! Merry Christmas and happy new year,
Elena Costa

Hi Sarah!

I'm sorry for your flu but it seems to me that everybody's getting ill during these last few weeks! It's too cold outside! I'm back from Bologna and I have a terrible flu (and cough) too!

Hope you'll recover soon so that you'll be spending a very merry Christmas with your family!

Best whishes!
