In previous offerings of CS 169, some students indicated a preference for watching the lectures online rather than in person.
As an experiment, to acknowledge this, we are deliberately scheduling the regular lecture in a room smaller than the maximum enrollment of the course.
Those of you who enjoy live lectures are welcome to come to 306 Soda. Those who prefer to watch online will not be stigmatized for skipping the live lecture.
However, there are important caveats:
We will conduct anonymous surveys during the semester to see how students think the experiment is going.
