Java Tutorial (1) March 5, 2007

Posted by Khawarizmiya in college, Java, memoir, recovered from blogspot.

Assalam Alaykom,

[Java.jpg]This is Engineer N. speaking ;p lol. Well lets see. First of all Alhamdulellah things went smoothly to a reasonable extent. I had worries regarding the laboratory we’re going to use and the Data show availability, but both issues were solved. The number of students registered had increased by the actual time of the tutorial to 50 students, almost half of them at 12.30pm and the other at 5pm.

@ 12.30pm
I turned on the data show, turned off the lights and took a deep breath.
The lab was full, about 75% girls and 25% guys. I usually think that the girls are pretty much talkative, more than guys, but in this lab the guys proved they can be talkative as well. I distributed the manual I had prepared for them and asked everybody to be quiet so we can start. (actually I sort of clapped my hands and said “shshshsh” LOOL).

They all paid attention -thankfully-, and so the class started. I went through the basics of Java installation, Java I/Os, class String, Random Numbers, and some other topics I cant remember.
The guys were the ones asking Questions all the way. To tell you the truth having a student ask you a question about something they dont understand feels kind of good. The feeling that OK, there’s someone listening to what I’m saying out there! lol. I wasnt annoyed as I thought I would be. Maybe sometimes when I felt like the Qs are just being asked to waste time..but Watever.

One time this guy asked me to explain a certain point again so I did, then I offered -out of my generosity- to explain the preceding point, He said ma ma3naah..(No you took too much time in explaining that one) lol.. CONFUSION.

Anyway Tomorrow is my next and final episode in the Tutorial. I will ask them afterwards to post their comments here if they didnt mind ;)

To all professors, TAs, any teachers out there, God bless you. didnt know teaching can be such a burden ;)
