You can take a ‘selfie video’ with your phone or get help from a friend. Be as creative as you like!
Begin by telling use your name and then read the revised responses to your 'Get Acquainted' questions. Read as naturally as possible. You can then say anything else you like (or not).  If you have any problems uploading the video to the Band, email the file to Jeff at pufslebow@gmail.com


After completing your ENG251 Entrance Questionnaire  (so that Jeff knows your Gmail address), go to your Google Drive.  Click 'Shared with me'.
You should see a folder with your name and student ID.
Click 'New/ Google Doc'.
Change the Title to 'Your Name, Student ID, Get Acquainted Responses'.
Type (or copy/paste) your revised responses to the 'Get Acquainted Questions' there.
You do not need to save the document - it is automatically saved every 5 seconds.
You are encouraged (but not required) to post this on your blog as well.

You're Done!  Enjoy your weekend!
