Assignment 1: Introduce yourself

The goals of this assignment are to:

  • Learn how to post on the course website
  • Introduce yourself to me and your classmates

It’s VERY IMPORTANT that you categorize your post as “Assignments” and “A1: Intro posts”. That will enable me and your classmates to easily find all of these posts.

What to include in your post

  • your name
  • say something ¬†(could be something about you such as your year in school, major, interests, or an observation about microbiology – or anything else fit to print)
  • a picture – this can be either of you or ¬†something related to microbiology

*Note that this website is technically public (although it’s unlikely that many will find it), so please don’t share anything that you wouldn’t want to be publicly available.

Need help learning how to post and assigning categories to you post? Watch this tutorial video.

NOTE: We’ve discovered that not everyone has yet been granted access to the site (Jan. 22). The web designer is going to attempt to resolve it on Monday (Jan. 23). I’ve extended the deadline until Friday, Jan. 27, to help allow time for troubleshooting and doing the assignment. Thanks for your patience as we work out the kinks in the new website!

Still can’t get it to work? Email me at and I’ll attempt to help.
