Introductions is a tool created by the College of Arts and Letters Educational Technology Office to support community building in blended and online courses.
Introductions allows instructors to provide a place for students to introduce themselves including a picture upload and optional video profile. Profiles are then displayed in a grid-based page allowing for all students in the course to browse other profiles.
Introductions is in beta testing during Summer 2011 and is expected to be released more widely Fall Semester 2011. If you are a College of Arts and Letters faculty member or instructor and would like to try out Introductions please contact us!
