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:
- What is your name and what nickname (if any) do you like to go by?
- What is your course of study at this college?
- Where are you from?
- What hobbies do you enjoy?
- 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.
