Before beginning coursework, please complete some easy tasks to get familiar with the course content.

  1. Complete the getting to know you form.
  2. Learn about Slack and how to sign up for our workspace.
  3. Look in the Channel List on Slack for the #introductions channel. Send a message to introduce yourself! Mention your degree program. Other ideas for an introductory message (you don’t have to do all this—only share what you want):
    • your undergrad institution
    • your home city/state/country
    • your favorite TV show/movie
    • what you pretend your favorite TV show/movie is when you want to impress someone
    • pictures of your pets
    • photos from a recent trip
    • hobbies
  4. Bookmark this website. You will need it throughout the course. You can even add it as a shortcut to your phone’s home screen.

Orientation Videos

Please note: these videos are a little out-of-date, especially with regards to homework and submission methods. What’s on the syllabus is what’s correct! I intend to make some new videos soon but Kaltura is having some problems since the Blackboard update, so we’ll make do with whaat we’ve got.
