TA Office Hours:
Here are short readings on the Web that may help you understand
concepts we have covered. There may be exam questions from the first
of these readings, but there will not be questions directly about
topics in the others unless we've mentioned those topics in lecture,
slides, or textbook. In other words, all but the first of these can
supplement what you've read, or present info in another way.

Questions to think about...
- Does this site have good usability?
- What tasks or goals does it support well? What tasks or goals does it not support well?
- If you aren't satisified with the website, is it because of its usability or because
it is missing "features" or "functions"? Are those a component of usability, or something separate?
- Does it matter who you are? If you're a student wanting to know what happened on Day 1?
If you're another professor wondering how my course is organized?
- Is the site enjoyable or satisfying to use? Is that part of usability? Are there users
for whom that matters less or not at all?
