•  Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we expect to utilize SNU's eTL system in three ways below
at least during the first weeks of the semester:

(1) Class announcements: Please check your email regularly, and the course page on eTL.
(2) Online lectures: Please make sure to first log in to eTL, then access the Zoom online lecture link
via the Physics 1 course page. This is to let the eTL system check your attendance automatically.
Visit zoom.snu.ac.kr for more information about Zoom+eTL.
(3) Assignment submissions: Be ready to submit your homework and quiz through the assignment
submission links on the course page. More information during the classes.
