Welcome to rmotr.com! This guide will help you keep track of how things work in a rmotr.com course.
Please feel free to suggest things we could include in this guide. This guide is backed in a public and open source Github repo and everyone can contribute to it.
This guide has a lot of content, and we're constantly updating it. You don't need to read/watch everything right now, but there are a few important things to start with:
- How to use your students dashboard: This is FUNDAMENTAL. Your student's dashboard is your go-to place for every resource at RMOTR.
- Code of Conduct: Equally important, please make sure you read and understand it before starting the course.
- Required tools to start the class: What to install and have ready before the class starts.
- How to get help: How and to whom reach out for help.
You might also find interesting our:
- Individual work guide: how the learn platform works and how to read tests.
- Group Project Guides: How Group Projects work (including installing libraries, github workflow, etc).
While reading these lines, while working on an individual assignment, or when that shower thought pops up: you can always reach out to us. If you don't understand something, or you have a question, saw a bug or possible improvement, or any other reason: get in touch. See the next section about "How to get help" to get more details about it.
How this guide is structured
This website/platform you're currently browsing is what we call learn. All the content we provide will be hosted on this platform, so we want you to feel comfortable with it. We hope it's intuitive enough to follow. Basically, learn has many "courses" (like this one you're browsing). Each course has a set of Units (high level) and each unit has many different "lessons". Each lesson can be either a "reading" lesson (like this one you're currently reading) or an "assignment lesson" that is basically a lesson that has a coding exercise that you can submit in place. (See an example). The following diagram will explain it better:
Now move to the next lesson that talks about our private How to Get Help?
