Students – now that you have spent some time setting up your profile on this page, it is time to try uploading some text. Don’t worry, it takes a few kicks at the can but you’ll figure it out quickly!
When you go to our site, and log in, you will see your dashboard on the left hand side of the page. Select post and add new to create a new entry. Clicking it will open a window for you to compose your thoughts. You can add images or just plain old text. To the right of the text box is a vertical with several options. I have set up a series of categories to organize your entries each week. Tick box 1. Students Introduce Yourselves.
Once you have written a few things about yourself, and selected box 1, you are ready to publish it. Maybe click preview to see how it looks! If you like how it looks and reads, click publish and it will be live!
It is that simple! Now, if you find it challenging and can’t figure it out, don’t worry. In class Monday, we’ll spend a little time walking through things. Write your reflection piece and bring it to class and we’ll get it up and running by the end of the session.
In the meantime, try it out this weekend. Don’t forget to click 2. Defining Terms for this week’s reflections. And send me an email if you are having trouble.
See you on Monday!
