    • Sisu problems: more time for pre-assignment. Enrollments were have not moved to mycourses, so we have not been able to send notification of the pre-tasks for IDBM Challenge. Therefore, we gave extra time for the article pre-assignment. Read the article before Wed 15.9. session. But do the "my expectations for the course" assignment for 13.9., it is needed for your introductions! Check more info in "Assignments".
