Action Items for Starting INFO 200

Greetings all!

Here are some Action Items to get us started with INFO 200.

  1. If you haven’t already create your account on our section site (that’s here!):
  • Start here: https://infocom.hyperlib.sjsu.edu/register/
  • Fill in your name, username, e-mail, and create a strong password. You are free to use a pseudonym, but please tell me who you are!
  • Note: your username becomes your @username similar to Twitter. Use your first name, a nickname, or whatever you’d like to represent yourself in the course.
  • Enter in the registration code. Use the code I shared on our course Canvas site.

2. Check out these videos that will help you get started in optimizing and rounding out your experience in INFO 200.

5. Get involved and make some contacts with fellow students:

Head over to our “Icebreaker” group, join and share! You will also find other ready-made groups to join including  Course Site Help. The Groups feature of our site allows any member to create a group for folks of similar interest. Try it out!

Note:: Be sure you are logged into to our section site to make use of all of the social and commenting features. There will many opportunities to discuss assignments forthcoming.

Also, there’s an icebreaker for all INFO 200 students here at the Community Site!

Have fun exploring! I would suggest completing these action items before we start our first module. Check the course schedule here.

Also — Please email me directly at mstephens7@mac.com if you have questions. Or private message me on this site. Canvas email is not the friendliest for archiving messages, etc IMHO!  Please do not use Canvas for messages to me.
