Familiarize yourself with the Course Project Guide
and multimedia program options by reading the. Using the program you decide to use for your Week 7 multimedia Presentation (Prezi or Screencast), create a brief presentation (1-2 slides/elements) about the organism you chose for your course project. The organism should come from one of the four major kingdoms (Protist, Fungus, Plant, or Animal) and be indigenous to the area in which you reside. The organism should not be a domesticated pet
but rather a species that is native to the local area where you live.
Please include the following information about your species in your introductory presentation via an attached link along with your virtual introduction and be sure to choose an organism not already selected by one of your classmates:
1. Common and scientific names of the organism
2. Area of residence (city, state, country, etc.)
3. Why you chose this organism
One of the drawbacks to online learning is that you miss out on the interactions from your classmates. Therefore, please take this opportunity to interact with at least two of your classmates by responding to their entries. Feel free to ask questions about each other and your course projects as you will be spending the next eight weeks together sharing in the experiences of this course. On that note, classroom community is a huge part of the learning experience so in addition to your initial posts and reply posts, be sure to read the follow-up posts to your own posts and reply to any questions or requests for clarification. The forums are a great way to build a classroom community, learn from one another, and connect with your peers so be sure to check the forums regularly in order to keep the dialogue moving!
NOTE: If you are submitting a Prezi presentation, please copy and paste the URL address circled in red in the screenshot below:
Should you choose to write your posts in MS Word first, opting to cut and paste into the Rich Text Editor (RTE) Box from Word, please click HERE
to review the document on RTE otherwise your post may end up containing an overwhelming and unnecessary amount of “html” coding. If you type directly into the RTE box you will not run the chance of having this coding/clutter in your posts. Please retain this information for future forums. Thank you!
The forum will be evaluated using this rubric.
