Introduce Yourself (Example of an introductory forum, similar to what is often found in online courses)
Most online courses have a discussion forum where you are asked to introduce yourself. How much information you provide is up to you, but keep in mind, the introduction forum is your opportunity to meet your classmates. We recommend that you think of what you might tell people if you were asked to introduce yourself in a physical classroom.
In this instance, since it is less private than a class, think of what you might tell people if you were asked to introduce yourself at a conference.
- Click the Add a New Discussion Topic button
- Tell us something about yourself. How much or how little you post is up to you but here are some ideas to help you get started:
- Who you are,
- what you like doing,
- where you live
- what you hope to gain,
- whether this is your first online course,
- what you are concerns are about attending college,
Note: this forum will not be graded; it is simply to give you practice with an online, introduction forum. It also gives you an opportunity to "meet" some of your fellow students.
