Introduce and normalize use of the LMS and key digital learning tools. 

LC IconQM1.9:

Learners are asked to introduce themselves to the class.



It is of utmost importance to have a comprehensive guide for self-introductions in asynchronous online courses. Learners will create their own biographical storyboard post-instructor engagement with self-introduction materials. To accomplish this, students will need to consider three prompts:  

  • Personal Introduction: Students are tasked with presenting themselves or an alter-ego, highlighting their extracurricular commitments. 

  • Motivation for Subject: They will articulate their motivations for enrolling in the course, shedding light on the driving forces behind their study.
  • Course Inquiries: In this step, students will formulate their primary questions or concerns related to the course. 

Moreover, this exercise provides a guide for the instructor’s self-introduction video, a condensed biographical statement, and a biographical storyboard.
