CS6120 Lab 01
In this lab, we'll be working first in teams of three, and then together as a class.
- Form a team with the people sitting next to you.
- Together, visit the IMDb web site: http://imdb.com/.
Browse the web site and list the functions it offers to help users find movies
they'd like to watch. (There is no need to register.) (15 mins)
- Try to find a movie to watch tonight. As much as possible, the movie you select should be
one that all members of your team think they'll enjoy. It must also be a movie that
no one in the team has seen before. Record the steps you took in finding this movie
(both off-line steps as well as on-line steps); record
the movies you considered; and record your final decision. (15 mins)
As a class, we'll discuss what you learned during the team work. We'll be interested
to see: what strategy you used; how successful the final decision was; which of IMDb's
functions you found useful; what functions you think are missing from IMDb; and so on.
