Discussion #1: Self-Introduction

Step 1: Introduce Yourself

Let’s get to know each other a little bit. Your assignment is to create a discussion post to introduce yourself. Include the following information:

  1. What is your name and what nickname (if any) do you like to go by?
  2. What is your course of study at this college?
  3. Where are you from?
  4. What hobbies do you enjoy?
  5. What do you hope to get out of this class?

Step 2: Respond to Classmates’ Posts

After you have created your own post, look over the discussion posts of your classmates and respond to at least two of them.
