Read this before you attempt to do your assignment!!

  • You have to access your first assignment via ODTUClass. The assignment will redirect you to the IS100 assignment page. Always use ODTUClass to connect to the assignment page. Follow the instructions that are given below.
  • You must do your homework only on Microsoft Office products running on Windows. Do not do your homework on Ubuntu or any other Unix platformsotherwise, our tool may not read your homework and you may get zero points. If you don't have Microsoft Office products, you can use computer laboratories in the METU campus.
  • Homework files are customized for each student. (i.e. your student ID is embedded in the file that you download.) Do not share your file with others! Otherwise, your submission will not be evaluated and both you and the person that you get the file from will get zero points from the assignment.
  • The deadline for Assignment 1 submission is 08.04.2020(Wednesday) 23:55. Later submissions that are sent within the next day (09.04.2020) will be evaluated as late submissions and your grade will get a penalty for that (depending on how late you submitted). Any submission that is later than 09.04.2020, 23:55 will be discarded by the system. You are responsible for submitting early so that you are not affected by last-minute system glitches. 

How to download your assignment

1.    Go to IS100 course page on ODTUClass. (Use Internet Explorer or Microsoft Edge, not Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox!!)

2.    Click on the Homework link provided at ODTUClass. This link will redirect you to the IS100 assignment page. Please check your browser's pop-up settings before you open the page. Otherwise, you may not be able to open the page. 

3.    From the “Download Assignment” section, select “Assignment-1: MS Word”, and click the “Download Assignment” button.

4.    Your assignment files will be downloaded.


What to do after you have downloaded the assignment file

1.    Before making any changes, first UNZIP the word file to the desired location in your file system.

2.    Make the necessary changes that are requested in the assignment description, and save the file without changing its name.

3.    When you are finished making changes, do not forget to save the file! (Many students got zero points in the past just because they forgot to save the changes they made.)

4.    You must upload the Microsoft Word file that you have downloaded (do not create a new file). Because that file is unique for your student ID and another file cannot take its place. If you upload another file, you'll get zero points.
