Getting Help

We are here to help you! There are multiple ways that you can connect with us.

  • Piazza forums: We maintain a Piazza forum to discuss course material. We try to reply within a couple of hours (M-F, 9am - 5pm).

  • Office hours: We have daily office hours where you can chat with us on Microsoft Teams. Office hours will begin the week of Sept 13.

We use Microsoft Teams for office hours. To set it up:

  • Install MS Teams from the Office 365 Portal and Login using your UW email address e.g. watid@uwaterloo.ca. The application tends to be more reliable than running it through the web brower.
  • Login and you should find a CS 349 Fall 2021 team. Post a message in the Office Hours channel asking for help (during office hours only).
  • When they are available, the person holding office hours will video call you.
