CS/ECE 374: Office Hours


Office hours will be held using a combination of Zoom, Discord, and Queue@Illinois.

Jeff's office hours will be on this zoom link, and Dakshita's office hours will be on this one. All TAs will use a general Zoom room. Anyone wishing to ask/hear general-purpose questions should go to the respective zoom room of the Instructor/TA holding the office hour. Please be respectful of each other!

Conceptual office hours are highlighted with a yellow background, these office hours will address conceptual questions, but will not address any questions about guided problems or homework.

Anyone wishing to ask a question more privately of the Instructors/TA/CAs should join the Discord and go into one of the numbered Office Hour voice chat rooms with your teammates. You should only join a room if it is empty or your teammates are already there. Then, go to the Queue, and submit a queue entry, stating which Discord voice channel you are in.

Questions posted to the queue should be reasonably detailed (but not too detailed, since there is 200 characters limit). Questions like "I don't know how to start" belong in general-purpose Zoom, and will be deleted from the queue.

Unfortunately, we are unlikely to have time in office hours to verify your complete solution and give you direct feedback on it. All such questions will be pushed to the back of the queue. This is what the grading the homerworks is for! (Also, you are doing the homeworks in groups, in part so that you can help each other debug your answers.)

You can use a service such as Google Jamboard to share a whiteboard. Hopefully this goes smoothly! If you live in a country where Discord is blocked (e.g. China or the UAE), you can use your UIUC VPN to access, hopefully. Please let us know if this is a problem.


This schedule is subject to change based on need/availability. Please check back regularly to check for changes.

Instructors and TAs are bolded, CAs are not. All times are Chicago time.
