Once you have closely read the getting started page and syllabus carefully, please send me a message through Canvas to tell me that you’ve done so (e.g. “Hi Adam, I’ve read the getting started page and the syllabus. Best, YourFavoriteStudent”). Not only will this confirm that you’ve reviewed these resources, but it will also confirm that you know how to contact me through Canvas: both are important! This message would also be a great way to ask me any questions you have about the syllabus, course requirements, or online format.
You can also post general (not personal) questions to the Minitrue discussion board (also accessible from the Home page). This will be an open discussion throughout the semester where WE can coordinate on course related questions, issues, or observations. If you send me a private message and I think the response would benefit other students, I'll post your question (with your name redacted) and my response to the Minitrue discussion board.
You do NOT need to (nor can you) submit anything through this assignment. Just send me a message to tell me you've read the getting started page and the syllabus.
