Core University English (CUE) course

1. Attendance and Participation

CAES expects students to attend 100% of scheduled classes (including the add/drop period) and complete all assigned out-of-class tasks (if applicable).  20% absence is allowed for emergencies or sick leave. Students who are not able to meet the 80% attendance requirement due to various reasons should contact their teacher immediately.  Students may risk failing the course if they miss a substantial proportion of the course without providing any medical certificate or legitimate reason for their absence.

Students have the responsibility to contact their teacher before the commencement of the course if they know in advance they have problems meeting the 80% attendance requirement . Examples of such cases include students who are pending faculty’s approval for their application for leave of absence.

If students know in advance that they have problems with attending the scheduled classes then they should also contact their teacher immediately and provide an explanation.  It is very important for the teacher concerned to be informed about this ahead of time so that they can make appropriate arrangements for these students.

CAES classes are highly interactive. We would like our students to get the most out of our courses by actively participating in lessons via responding to their teacher and classmates. If for any reason participation in interactive activities is not possible in some of our courses with a virtual learning element (e.g., internet connection problem)​, students should let their teacher know in advance.

If students have any special needs or circumstances that may affect their attendance or ability to complete course assignments on time, they are strongly encouraged to seek professional advice from HKU-CEDARS  ( https://www.cedars.hku.hk/ ). ​

2. Punctuality

We expect students to be punctual for all the scheduled classes and tutorials of CAES. Students may be marked as partially absent if they are  late for 10 minutes   or more  for a class without a valid reason.  Lateness for two times  may count as  one absence.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The rules stated above apply to both face-to-face and online classes.

3. Academic Honesty

HKU expects all students to display a high level of integrity when completing course assignments. Any form of academic dishonesty will not be tolerated, and failure to observe the rules and conduct of academic integrity will result in negative consequences. As such, you should complete your course assessments honestly at all times. Examples of basic principles of academic honesty include: (i) completing the entire assessments yourself; (ii) NOT submitting the same assessment more than once unless specified otherwise by the course teachers concerned, and (iii) not colluding (i.e. cooperating with others secretly with an intention to deceive) with anyone when producing your work.

We would like to draw your attention to sections 3.1 and 3.2 for details of two common forms of academic misconduct which result in severe consequences.

3.1 Plagiarism and Self-plagiarism 

Plagiarism is defined as “the use of another person’s work (including but not limited to any materials, creations, ideas and data) as if one’s own without due acknowledgement, whether or not such work has been published and regardless of the intent to deceive” in the Policy on Student Plagiarism in Undergraduate and Taught Postgraduate Curricular (116/1080).  Some common types of plagiarism include:

1) paraphrasing and/or quoting without acknowledgement;

2) inappropriate paraphrasing and/or quotation of sourced content.

This is not an exhaustive list but it gives you an idea of some common types of plagiarism cases in students’ work.

Examples of plagiarism:

You are strongly advised to visit the following links about the University’s Policy on Plagiarism: https://tl.hku.hk/plagiarism/how-to-avoid-plagiarism/

Learning resources to help you avoid plagiarism: https://tl.hku.hk/plagiarism/learning-resources/

hku late submission of assignment

Consequences of Plagiarism

In the University of Hong Kong, plagiarism is a disciplinary offence .  If a submission contains plagiarism, only the unplagiarised parts will be marked. This may result in the work being considered as incomplete, unstructured, lacking content and organization.

The link below contains information about  consequences and disciplinary procedures concerning students who have committed plagiarism:

https://tl.hku.hk/plagiarism/consequences-of-plagiarism/

3.2 Ghost Writing and Its Consequences

Ghost writing, also known as ‘contract cheating’, is when a student gets someone (paid or unpaid) to complete  part of OR all of  an assignment. It is serious academic misconduct. CAES takes ghost writing very seriously and when such cases are confirmed, severe penalty will apply. The assignment concerned will be treated as a non-submission (i.e. 0 mark). Such cases will also be reported to students’ Home Faculty for disciplinary action. If such cases are further reported to the University Disciplinary Committee, the student who is found guilty is subject to various forms of punishment, details of which can be found in section 4 of Statute XXXI of the University’s Statutes and the Disciplinary Committee Regulation:  https://calendar.hku.hk/disciplinary-committee-regulations/

4. Submission of Assignments

If students are  sick  and unable to hand in an assignment, they must  contact their teacher  to let them know immediately. The following are general guidelines on penalties/policies for late submission of assignments for all CAES courses.

  • Assignments which are handed in  up to four days  late without any medical/legitimate reason will  have one full letter grade deducted  each day  (e.g., a B- becomes a C- after one day late).
  • If the assignment is submitted  four days after the deadline   without a medical certificate/a legitimate reason,  it will be treated as non-submission (N – 0 mark). It is up to the programme coordinator to decide whether such students should be given feedback on this assignment.
  • Students who do not submit an assignment at all or miss an assessment without a medical certificate should be given an N (0 mark).

5. Bad Weather

In the case of bad weather such as Black / Red Rain or Typhoon Signal 8, please follow the university guidelines (updated 2021 by The Registry):

  • (a) Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 8 (or above) is hoisted; or (b) Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 8 will be issued within two hours as announced by the Hong Kong Observatory; or (c) “Extreme conditions” after super typhoons are in force (announced by the Government before the Hong Kong Observatory replaces Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 8 with Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 3); or (d) Black Rainstorm Signal is in force, the following arrangements will apply:

For classes and examinations not yet started:

For classes and examinations already started:

When Tropical Cyclone Warning Signal No. 3 or below or Red or Amber Rainstorm Signal is in force, it should be assumed that all classes and examinations will be held as scheduled unless an announcement to the contrary has been made by the University.

Examinations are normally held in December for first semester courses, and in May for second semester and full-year courses.  For most courses, apart from written examinations, your efforts in tests, continuous assessment of performance, laboratory work, field work, and research or project reports will also be taken into account when determining the final examination result.

Grading System

The grades, their standards and the grade points for assessment shall be as follows:

*For student who has taken any credit bearing course with the assessment on a Distinction/Pass/Fail basis, no grade point will be achieved from such category of course. However, the credits gained will be counted to fulfill the credit requirements for graduation.

Examination

Students who fail to take the examination as scheduled normally result in an automatic failure in the course. Candidates who are unable to be present at any examination of a course because of illness may apply for permission to present themselves for examination at some other time. Any such application shall be made on the form prescribed within seven calendar days of the date of the examination and the form should be sent to the Examinations Office. The leave granted by the attending doctor must cover the examination session that the candidate was absent from, otherwise supplementary examination will not be arrange d.   ​​​​Late submission is not considered by the Board of Examiners. If the Board allows you to sit a supplementary examination, you will be informed of such by the relevant Department.

If you are absent from examinations due to reasons other than illness, you should write to the Board as soon as after your examination but not later than seven calendar days from the date of your examination.

The Board of Examiners meets in January and June every year to determine examination results.

The Faculty does not have supplementary examinations for students who fail in the examinations. However, supplementary examinations may be arranged for those students who are absent from examinations due to illness, subject to the Board of Examiners’ (the Board) approval. Supplementary examinations are not granted automatically but would be considered by the Board on an individual basis.

Only those students who are permitted by the Board to take a supplementary examination will be individually informed of such an outcome. The Department will arrange the supplementary examination as early as practicable, in consultation with the student concerned. For students who are absent from the supplementary examination, no further supplementary examination will be arranged . 

All examination papers are carefully marked by examiners and the results are duly approved by the Board of Examiners. The University’s position is that student appeals against examination results which are academic judgments are disallowed. However if students who wish to apply for checking of procedural irregularity or technical error of the assessment result shall submit a separate application for each assessment result to be checked via the Science Online Application Submission System (OASS) within 7 days after the announcement of the assessment result. Please refer to document 111/511 re-amended for the Procedures for Checking of Assessment Results of Taught Courses .  

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • You have to submit one application for each assessment result to be checked, together with the receipt of payment, via the Science Online Application Submission System (OASS) ; AND
  • Late application will not be considered.

Feedback Policy

  • Major and course coordinators and teachers are strongly encouraged to incorporate a variety of learning activities to provide different modes of learning and to provide structure to the self-study hours. Assessments of students’ learning in these activities provide important feedback to both the teachers and students as to the extent of learning achieved.
  • Teachers are encouraged to provide feedback to students on all assessment tasks, and to give detailed feedback for those assignments with a substantial weighting towards the final grade. In addition to individual grades and formative comments that identify strengths and weaknesses, feedback may be open in the form of discussions on correct solutions and common errors of the class as a whole. Additional forms of feedback on the performance of the students could be through the use of anonymized exemplars of assignments of a range of grades (good to poor) to illustrate the teachers’ marking criteria and expectations. Feedback can be given in class or tutorials, or through electronic means, such as using Panopto clips or on Moodle. Teachers are encouraged to provide group feedback on the overall student performance in the examinations of introductory level (1xxx and 2xxx) courses within 2 weeks of the publication of the final course results.
  • It is also important that timely feedback 1 on assessments be provided to students so that they can track their progress in a course, and learn from previous assessments in time to prepare for examinations. Students should be aware of their cumulative assessment mark to inform them on their standing before proceeding to the final exam. In order to provide timely assessment, teachers are encouraged to redesign learning activities to give automated feedback such as available from Moodle. Teachers can also enlist the help of RPg markers, and ensure that they are given sufficient instruction and detailed marking schemes to perform grading accurately and fairly. RPg marking should be moderated/sampled to ensure fairness and consistency.

1 For laboratory, fieldwork, or quizzes which are continually assessed throughout a course, marked reports or quizzes should be returned to the students within 2 weeks of submission. Assignments submitted before Reading Week should be marked and returned to students within 3 weeks after Reading Week. Work submitted after Reading Week should be marked and returned before the final examination.

Coursework FAQ

Course reader.

Soft copies of course readings for certain courses will be uploaded onto Moodle. Moodle is an online platform for sharing e-copies of course materials, videos, and for virtual meeting/ discussion. You may gain access to Moodle via HKU portal in the "E-Learning" section. The Moodle page for each course is open to students who have been enrolled in the course only.

MA Dissertations stored in the department library are available for reading in person in the MALCS Office. The final-bound dissertation copies stored in the department are from students who have obtained a Distinction, with a copy lodged in the Main Library on reserve.

Course switching is not allowed after the course selection period for each semester is closed.

Award of a TPg qualification with an overall distinction

The award of a taught postgraduate qualification with an overall distinction is a recognition of excellence, a relatively rare achievement. Please refer to Grading Criteria for the Award of a Taught Master's Degree with Distinction .

Students admitted in academic year 2017-18 or after:

Letter grades for MALCS courses will be disclosed to students. Students will be informed of the course assessment results shown as letter grades with GPA via the HKU Portal. Only satisfactorily completed courses will earn credits.

Students admitted in academic year 2016-17 or before:

No letter grades for MALCS courses will be disclosed to students. Students will be informed of the course assessment results shown as "Distinction"/ "Pass"/ "Fail" via the HKU Portal.

Grading Criteria

Students may however request checking of the final course grade or the result of any assessment component of any course if they have reason to believe that there is any procedural irregularity or technical error in the determination of that result (e.g. an error in the recording, collating or aggregation of grades/marks which continue to the final result).

Such checking is not and does not entail academic re-assessment of the materials or coursework presented by the student. In other words, appeal against the academic judgment of the examiners will not be entertained.

An application for checking of procedural irregularity or technical error, together with the receipt of fee payment, should be submitted by the student as soon as possible after the release of the assessment result, and in any case must reach the Faculty Office no later than two weeks after the publication of the course's final assessment result as determined by the BoE.

Click here for details.

MALCS courses are assessed by 100% coursework. Student will be failed in a course for non-submission of course assignment(s).

Students can apply for a 2-day extension for one assignment in the same course during a semester. The student must notify the instructor one week before the assignment is due, and must keep to the new due date. Late papers including those after the extended due date will be subjected to grade reduction.

With the approval from Course Instructor, Programme Chairperson, and the MA Board of Examiners, students who fail in a course would be given a chance for resubmitting the course assignment for re-examination within a month.

Capstone Experience: Dissertation/ Portfolio/ Individual Project

Please refer to the " Coursework " and Capstone Experience in the " Courses " section of our website.

Students who have received a B+ grade or above in 4 or more courses, and with the approval by the MALCS Programme Chairperson, may choose to do:

1) a dissertation of approximately 10,000 words or

2) an individual project – an approved creative work under supervision and a written report of around 5,000 words; as partial fulfilment of the requirements for the MA degree.

Students who opt for dissertation writing must take the elective CLIT7012 Dissertation Seminar . Students who opt for portfolio and individual project must attend special sessions and/or workshops.

All students have the option to compile a portfolio of coursework for the MA curriculum. Students choosing the Portfolio option are required to revise at least two previous MALCS papers into a final paper of approximately 10,000 words. Students who opt for portfolio/individual project must take another elective course in lieu of CLIT7012.

A supervisor will be assigned to each student in March/April of their final year in the programme. Students are recommended to take initiative to contact their supervisors directly for consultation, or virtual meeting via email, between May and June.

In principle, students can request for extending the submission deadline of Dissertation/ Portfolio/ Individual Project to a proposed date within a month of the official submission date. Nonetheless, there may be a deferral of the graduation year for students who request for extension. They may not be invited to attend the Congregation of the same year as their classmates.

Academic Writing

MLA. Please refer to the MLA Citation Guides . Students should use proper citation format for all the references in their essays, and avoid plagiarism.

Online resources for academic writing are available on Centre for Applied English Studies (CAES)'s website at:

Course Policies

  • Penalties for Late Work : All assignments are due on the scheduled day and time. Each day late without a pre-approved extension will result in the reduction of your grade by 1/3 of a letter (e.g., an A- will become a B+).
  • Excused Absences: If you are sick or facing other extenuating circumstances that force you to miss class, please notify your tutor as soon as possible and provide some form of written documentation. We will work with you to make up what you missed in such cases.
  • Religious Observances : We will make every effort to deal reasonably and fairly with all students who, because of religious obligations, have conflicts with scheduled assignments or required attendance. Please notify us of any such conflicts during the first week of the semester.
  • Classroom Interactions : Students and faculty each have responsibility for maintaining an appropriate and safe learning environment. Professional courtesy and sensitivity are especially important with respect to individuals and topics dealing with differences of race, color, culture, religion, creed, politics, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and gender expression, age, disability, and nationalities. Class rosters are provided to the instructor with the student’s legal name. We will gladly honor your request to address you by an alternate name or gender pronoun. Please advise us of this preference early in the semester so that we may make appropriate changes to our records.
  • Academic Freedom : The University of Hong Kong is a community of students, faculty, and staff who work together to discover new knowledge, create new ideas, and share the results of our scholarly inquiry with the wider public. Although new ideas or research results may be controversial or challenge established views, the health and growth of any society requires frank intellectual exchange. Academic freedom refers to this type of free exchange and is thus essential to any university’s mission. Moreover, academic freedom supports collaborative work in the pursuit of truth and the dissemination of knowledge in an environment of inquiry, respectful debate, and professionalism. In order to encourage the open exchange of ideas in the context of this class and protect students and teachers, we will not be recording lectures and tutorials.
  • Warning against Plagiarism : Plagiarism is the use of someone else’s work, words, or ideas without proper acknowledgement. In all your assignments, including your blog posts and drafts, you must always make clear where you have borrowed from others by identifying the original source and extent of your use of another’s work. This obligation holds whether the sources are published or unpublished and whether they are in print or on the internet. This also applies to class PowerPoint slides, which should be cited if used in assignments. As stated in the University of Hong Kong’s Full-Time Undergraduate Handbook , “The University does not allow or tolerate plagiarism…. Any student who commits plagiarism is liable to disciplinary action which can result in serious consequences – including expulsion from the University.” For more information on plagiarism and how to avoid it, please read the booklet “What is Plagiarism?” ( https://tl.hku.hk/plagiarism/ ) and consult your teacher if you have any questions.
  • SEN Support : If you have a disability or special educational needs (SEN) that require an accommodation, please speak with the teacher and consult SEN Support at CEDARS ( https://www.cedars.hku.hk/cope/sen ). SEN Support will determine appropriate accommodations and will work with your course coordinator to make sure these are available to you.
  • Counseling : As a student you may experience a range of issues that can cause barriers to learning.

COMP3516 Data analytics for IoT / Spring 2024

Course description.

Welcome to COMP3516@HKU!

This is the non-official site of HKU COMP3516 2024 Spring. This website is maintained at best effort . Enrolled HKU students should join Moodle page . In the event of any discrepancies between this page and Moodle, the Moodle page shall prevail.

This course introduces basic concepts, technologies, and applications of the Internet of Things (IoT), with a focus on data analytics. The course covers a range of enabling techniques in sensing, computing, analytics, learning for IoT and connects them to exciting applications in smart homes, healthcare, security, etc. The lectures cover the pipeline of data generation, data acquisition, data transportation, data analysis and learning, and data applications, with various topics from the fundamentals (e.g., signal processing, statistical analysis, machine learning) to real-world systems. Billions of things are connected today, and this course helps students to understand how IoT will evolve into AIoT (Artificial Intelligence of Things).

Important Note: According to the University’s guidelines, all lectures and tutorials will be delivered f2f in teaching venues . Lectures may be recorded, at best-effort, and video recordings will be uploaded to Moodle after the lectures.

Note: The assignments are tentative and subject to changes. More details to be announced.

*TTT: We intend to design and develop this course as a communication-intensive course. As part of it, we have designed a special component named “3-Minutes Takeaway Talk”. By the end of each lecture, I will reserve three minutes and invite one student to give a summary of the takeaway messages for the lecture, in the format of a Chalk Talk in front of the class. Every participant will be awarded a 1-point bonus. The participants will be selected (randomly, or at least as randomly as possible) by me at the end of the lecture. If you would like to participate, please sign up with your name first.

Besides TTT, as you can tell, the course also features intensive written communications (technical report, peer review, etc) and oral communications (presentation), plus wireless communications certainly:-P

Office Hour

Late policy.

Each assignment has a due date and a due time, which will be posted on the course web page. For assignments, we will use a “slip days” system to give you some flexibility with the assignment deadlines.

Each student starts the semester with five (5) slip days , which can be used to push back assignment deadlines. Slip days work as follows:

Pushing an assignment deadline back by one day (24 hours) costs one slip day. An assignment deadline can be pushed back at most three days. Fractional slip days are not allowed; e.g., it is not possible to use part of a slip day to push a deadline back by six hours. Slip days are not transferable from one student to another. By default, the slip days will be applied automatically* as needed according to the exact timestamp of submission. A FREE late window of 30 minutes is allowed to accommodate potential technical issues upon submission. In other words, submissions made within 30 minutes after the deadline need no slip days to cover them. All the thresholds will be observed strictly. For example, a submission that is late for 1801 seconds (i.e., 30 minutes plus 1 second) will use one slip day.

Assignments that are submitted late (with not enough slip days to cover them or more than 3 days) will still be accepted, but deducted to p = 0.99^t, where t is the uncovered late time rounded up in hours.

Let D be the deadline, and T your submission timestamp. The number of slip days that will be used for a submission, noted as SD, is calculated as follows:

These slip days are not for “procrastination.” They are designed to give you more breathing room in case some (usually unexpected and mostly unwanted) little things come up during the semester: short illnesses, injuries, visiting family or friends, a burst of work in other classes, etc. Use them wisely.

Review Window of Assignment Grading

Review of Assignment Grading (for any assignments) will ONLY be accepted within TWO weeks after the grading is released. Requests to review after two weeks will be ignored automatically without a reply.
