In order to practice presenting yourself to others and fostering collaboration within an academic community, you will upload a video introducing yourself to your colleagues. This Assignment has a lower point value to reduce first-week anxiety around technology requirements. However, you are required to learn this technology as you will be using Kaltura Media in your Final Project for this course, as well as in other courses within the program. Learning the technology now allows you to develop the skills needed to complete later course requirements.

When recording videos, remember that you are creating a professional presentation. If you stumble a bit, don’t feel you have to record yourself again because this is not a formal presentation, such as a speech. However, your video does need to be  professional. In other words, dress professionally and conduct yourself as if you are in an agency setting with colleagues and supervisors. Be sure to record yourself in a room that is quiet and where no one interrupts you.

Remember: This Assignment has a lower point value to reduce first-week anxiety around technology requirements. The goal is to become comfortable with a common technological tool in the online classroom.
