Here are the steps for first day of class.
- Read the syllabus. Please note that is course has contract grading. That means that you need to decide which grade you want to work for. It may seem obvious that you want to work for an A, but an A means more work, so you can decide if you want to do that or not.
- Accept the invitation that I emailed to you to join this blog. Accepting the invitation will allow you to author your own posts here and comment on others. Once you are logged in, you will see a new menu bar at the top of the page, by clicking on it, you will be able to go into the blogging dashboard. From there I think things are fairly self-explanatory. There is also plenty of help documentation for WordPress. But if you have a problem you can’t figure out, let me know.
- Introduce yourself to the class. Tell us a little about yourself, your interest in the course, and your experience with gaming. When you write the post, you’ll see a box called “Categories” in the dashboard. Check the “introductions” category. (If you can’t figure out how to do it, just post anyway; we can always put it in the category later.)
- Start reading Jane McGonigal’s Reality is Broken. You need to finish it this week, so just start plowing through.
