In this section we summarize important semester and course dates.
All submission deadlines are 11:59 PM. Specific days are noted in the above table. It is your responsibility to meet all deadlines. Do not wait until the last minute to submit. We will not respond to last minute inquiries regarding late submissions or notifications about barely-missed submission deadlines.
The above table lists three design documents which constitute the written communication about the detailed design of your project milestone as specified in each assigned milestone description. Each design document is to be handed in online, to Turnitin, as a PDF document or Word document. You may select any word-processor, such as Latex or Microsoft Word for producing the PDF or Word document. Your Project Manager may also request a printed copy and will specify whether it is to be submitted at the first lecture or first tutorial, following the 11:59 p.m. deadline.
The text of all design documents must be submitted to Turnitin.com by the 11:59 PM deadlines. The University of Toronto requires that the following notice be included in the syllabus:
Students will be required to submit their course essays to Turnitin.com for a review of textual similarity and detection of possible plagiarism. In doing so, students will allow their essays to be included as source documents in the Turnitin.com reference database, where they will be used solely for the purpose of detecting plagiarism. The terms that apply to the University's use of the Turnitin.com service are described on the Turnitin.com web site.
The code refers to the source code and any additional software artifacts, as specified in the individual milestones.
Note, the dual-deadline model for each milestone. There are two deadlines for each milestone, except the first milestone that only has a code submission deadline and no design document deadline, for a total of 7 deadlines for this course. This is neither counting the Midterm Software Demonstration and the Final Exam Presentation, which are scheduled separately, nor the deadline for Team Selection.
The first deadline for each assigned milestone requires the submission of the design document. The document will form the basis for the discussions in the tutorials with the communication instructors. Also, our intent for having you submit the design document first is to have you think about the design prior to the actual implementation. The second deadline for each milestone requires the submission of the source code.
Detailed submission instructions are provided in each of the four milestone handouts.
