Office hours and getting help
There are a number of ways of getting help, and generally benefiting from
interaction with your fellow students and with the instructors:
Physical office hours
The instructors will be available for questions at these times and places
(unless announced otherwise on the announcement page):
David G. Messerschmitt (instructor): M 2:30-3:30pm and W 3:30-4:30pm,
517 Cory Hall
Appointments at other times can be scheduled by sending email.
Hal Varian: TBA, 102 South Hall
Online office hours
The instructors will participate in the course chatroom during the following
David G. Messerschmitt: W 8-9pm
Hal Varian: TBA
The discussion forum has a special room devoted to asking questions offline.
Students are encouraged to respond to these questions, and the instructors
will also frequently participate in this forum. This is generally better
than sending email to the instructors or other students, because the subsequent
answers and discussion are available for all students to see.
You are encouraged to participate in the chat room for the course, where
you can discuss issues about the course or the content in real time. It
is expected that the chat room will be especially active in the evening.
You can also send email to the instructors with issues or questions, especially
of a private nature.
