Support and assistance

Chat channel

This course does not have a channel in the Department of Computer Science Discord. Support is only offered on a volunteer basis in the Telegram group.

The course has a support chat channel in Telegram. We suggest that you use the channel either with Telegram's web browser client or with Telegram's desktop application.

You can join the channel through this link: https://t.me/java_programming_mooc You can access the web browser client here: https://web.telegram.org

There's also an off-topic channel for conversation that isn't directly connected to the course: https://t.me/java_programming_mooc_ot

The participants in the channel are fellow students and volunteer course assistants. The channel's activity is based on voluntary assistance. Please also help other students on the channel when you can.

If you ask for help in the channel, you may add a link to your program code. You can get a link to your code in NetBeans by pressing "TMC" —> "Send code to pastebin" and then selecting "Send" from the opened view. After you've sent the code, a new view should show up with the link to your code, which you can then share on the channel when you're asking for help.
