Teaching Archive Rules and Tips
Below are some general rules and tips for using this archive. If you
would like to add or update pages in this archive, please contact the
currently responsible for the Computer Science Department web site.
Material in this archive is the intellectual property of those who have
authored the material. Most pages list authorship at the bottom of the
page. Material that is currently in the archive can be used
as part of courses at BU and elsewhere so long as the source of the
material is cited (many pages do list authors). In the future,
however, authors may withdraw their material from the archive, at which
time, use of the material by others (including copies of the material,
with or without modifications) will no longer be allowed.
You should retain information about authors in any material you use.
In addition, you must amend resources that you modify with
a note saying that you are the author of the modifications.
Using Archive Pages
As such, we discourage users from making copies of the material. It is
preferable that you use these pages by directly linking to the version
in the archive. If you need to add additional information to the
material, such as an exercise to go along with some material in the
archive, we suggest you organize these additions in a separate page.
Finally, it is recommended that you link from your course home pages to
specific material found in the archive, rather than providing students
with a link to the entire archive.
Web pages marked as "[customizable]" support variable(s) that can be
used with the page's URL to alter its contents. Following the listing
for each customizable page is a link to a page describing how to use
those customization variables. You may also view some general comments
on using customization variables.
Kinds of Resources
Many of the resources are labelled to give more information about the kind
of material they contain. Some common labels are:
Material that individuals can follow on their own (although best to have
someone supervising them).
Material that can be used as part of a lab.
Material appropriate to project (i.e., from which to lecture).
Material that briefly describes the important issues under some topic.
Online reference material.
Reference material that can be printed and given to students.
Containing more than one kind of resource.
