Starting with introductions is a great way to break the ice in the classroom and have students make their first posts on ActiveFeed.
Here's a sample introduction post:
Hello everyone and welcome to Physics 1.1! My name is Matt Apple and I will be your instructor for this course.
Together, we will explore fascinating and intriguing topics related to Physics! It won't take long for you to realize that Physics is all around you and an essential part of your everyday life. I hope you're looking forward to the experience as much as I am. We'll spend the term working together, learning from each other, and supporting one another's success. Welcome! I'm so glad you're joining us.
Let’s all introduce ourselves! Make a post introducing yourself and make sure to include
1. Where you’re from
2. Your biggest achievement or a most memorable time
3. Your hobbies
4. Fun fact about you
5. What are your 5 year goals
6. If you have a pet, share pictures!
You can also encourage students to use the hashtag #intro for their introduction posts.
