Start Here!


Every module includes a page called “Assignments,” which details everything you need to do in order to complete that module. This first “Start Here!” module includes the following.



The three assignments listed below must be completed before 10:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 23, 2015.

Practice Quiz

Using the “Quizzes” tool in Georgia View, complete “Quiz: Introductions.” You must complete this quiz by the deadline, but it will not otherwise affect your grade in the class.

Survey: Media Use

The Media Use survey is the first of several surveys that we will complete this semester. This one asks you to indicate the hardware and software that you use most frequently. It is available in Georgia View or through the link in this paragraph.

Add Profile Picture to Georgia View

Steve SpenceAdd a picture to your profile by logging into Georgia View and following “My Home > Profile > Change Picture.”

I recommend that you use a picture of your face, but you do not have to do so. Whatever you choose, remember that this picture will be your “avatar” within our online community. Pick something that you want the rest of us to have as a mental image of you.

[I ask you to do this because it helps us all remember that there are real people behind the words and opinions we are seeing online.]
