Accessing the CS 173 course newsgroup

Many announcements, including homework hints, are distributed on the class discussion group. To sign up, enroll in CS 173 on the Piazza web site. You will need an access code that will be given out in lecture (or ask a member of the course staff).

The Piazza enrollment process will ask you for your university email address. So far, we've had good experiences with Piazza. However, since Piazza is not part of the university, we can't directly control what they may do with your email address. If you don't want to give them your U. Illinois email, you can use any email address you want, even an anonymous one.

Notice also that Piazza allows you to post questions anonymously.
