Hello! I’ve made a little video tour of the syllabus and our website to get you oriented, if you’d like to view it.

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

  1. Complete the getting to know you form.
  2. Sign up for our Slack channel. Customize your profile photo with a picture of yourself or something else unique to you. You may also like to provide your phone number or Skype username (this is optional).
  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.
