Homework for Quarter 4


WordEngine needs to be updated before it can work on iOS11. Please wait before upgrading to iOS11 or do your study on a real computer. WordEngine is a 32bit application, but iOS11 will now only run 64bit applications. If you have upgraded to iOS11, you will need to study WordEngine on a computer by signing into WordEngine.jp.

For the OC B class, we will do our presentations in a room with LAN and WiFi connections to the internet on Friday the 15th. If you need internet connectivity, you really must present Friday, because Tuesday, we will be back in LB1.
