Assignment for each lecture (online students only)

Updated 7/15/2018

Hand in an assignment for each lecture (online students only)

Online students get 10 pts. for engaging with the lecture material online for the same amount of time as a class session, 50 minutes. Here is how to do it.


Due date: within 6 days of the date of each lecture day. Here are some details:

  • The date of the lecture is stated in the syllabus. (If the recording of a lecture has a different date, it is because the lecture was recorded in a previous semester. Ignore the date of the recording and stick with the syllabus.)
  • Many class sessions, about half, are non-lecture days (they are group discussion days for in-class students). For non-lecture days, do not do this assignment. The syllabus should be clear about which days are lecture days and which are not.

Please post notes on the lecture day material to your blog. You may take notes using either option 1 or option 2.

Option 1: using the recorded lecture, (assuming a recording is available)

  • The title of the blog posting should be:
    • Notes on Recording of Lecture 7/23/2021

(Use not “7/23/2021” but the actual date.)

  • While listening to the recorded lecture, take notes and post them to your blog.

Option 2: using the lecture outline linked from the syllabus

  • The title of the blog posting should be:
    • Notes on Outline of Lecture 7/23/2021

(Use not “7/23/2021” but the actual date.)

  • Study the lecture outline. To understand the points in the outline you will often have to do web searches for more information and more detailed explanations. Take notes and post them to your blog. If you quote any phrases from the lecture outline or elsewhere be sure to put them in quotes “like this” because otherwise it is plagiarism.

HW1case – answers (applies to online students)

Revised 1/28/18

Q1. Prepare case notes on an ethics case related to intellectual property. Online students will post their notes to their blog. Your notes should include the following.

  • A link or other citation to the case you are using; if it is from personal experience, point that out.
  • A list of 8 or more important facts about the case. These could help you tell your group members or anyone or remind yourself what the case is all about.
  • A list of questions (5 or more) that you could consider yourself or ask someone else about (for online students); see the “Questions to ask during discussion” tab on the course web page for some suggestions in developing your discussion questions.

Answer: The source of my case is http://intellectualproperty.com/surprisingcase.html.

Eight important facts are:

  1. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, rutrum eu porta elementum consectetuer, commodo ipsum maecenas semper morbi urna aliquam, conubia mus augue, posuere eget, wisi sit at venenatis. Parturient dicta vestibulum, lectus erat aenean vulputate.

  6. Ac rutrum donec, ligula tellus nec aliquet, suspendisse consectetuer, in gravida nunc ligula, luctus et dictum dolor mi vulputate.
  7. Egestas sed, mollis consequat amet curae ridiculus aliquam, curabitur velit volutpat in et tellus.
  8. Vestibulum sed tincidunt nullam torquent, sed ut.

Five questions to ask about the case are:

  2. Magna a, sed tempor commodo aptent mauris, at ante ipsum tellus per, cras sollicitudin, justo sem nonummy sollicitudin dui?
  3. Risus justo at nisl feugiat mi?
  4. Vel condimentum eu feugiat maecenas adipiscing nec, volutpat suspendisse vestibulum pellentesque mauris vel, praesent diam?
  5. Ac rutrum donec, ligula tellus nec aliquet, suspendisse consectetuer, in gravida nunc ligula, luctus et dictum dolor mi vulputate?

  8. Egestas sed, mollis consequat amet curae ridiculus aliquam, curabitur velit volutpat in et tellus. Vestibulum sed tincidunt nullam torquent, sed ut.

3. Write up your case on your blog with the following subheadings:

  • “The facts of the case.” Here is where you describe the case in your own words.
  • “Analysis.” Examine the case in terms of the consequentialist and deontological approaches.
  • “Conclusions.” 
  • “Future environment.” Describe your vision of a future in which technology is more advanced than today, or society has changed in some significant way.
  • “Future scenario.” Describe how this ethical case (or an analogous one) would or should play out in the environment of the future, and give your opinions about it.
