Resources & Getting Help



We will be using Gradescope to submit labs and projects. If you are unfamiliar with Gradescope or aren’t sure how to submit your assignment, they created a Gradescope help document for you.

Getting Help

Office Hours

All times are listed for US Eastern Time (i.e., local time at Duke). Prof. Stephens-Martinez’s Consulting/Helper/Office hours will begin starting Sunday, 9/4. They will be:

  • Wednesday 2-3 PM, LSRC D224
  • Friday 3-4 PM, Zoom see link in Sakai

Class Forum

We will use Ed Discussion for online discussion. You access it from Sakai. You can post questions anonymously (to classmates), as well as message the instructors. Please use it for technical questions first instead of email. In particular, we encourage you to use it so that (a) you can get a faster response (the instructor and students can reply), (b) your questions don’t get lost in anyone’s email, and (c) other students can benefit from your questions or comments.

Academic Resource Center

Want expert consultation about study habits, learning, time management, and more? Check out the Academic Resource Center (ARC) at Duke.

Counseling and Psychological Services

Your thriving is about more than this class. If you need to talk to someone, consider Duke Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS).
