Hello. Welcome to the class blog for ENG 391W: Brain Narratives. Use the links in this post to help you set up your blog. Just follow these instructions:
1) If you have not done so for another class, sign up for a qwriting account. Then follow the instructions for creating your own blog. Once you have a username, join this blog by clicking the “Join this Blog” link to the right.
2) Change your display name: When you write posts and leave comments, they will be signed with your username, which is what you use to log in to the qwriting system. You should change your display name so instead of showing your username it shows your real name.
3) Familiarize yourself with the blog layout and the syllabus materials I’ve uploaded. You’ll find a link to the syllabus at the top along with assignments, policies, and the course schedule with links to all the readings. If you’re new to blogging, take a peek at some of the qwriting help pages: http://help.qwriting.qc.cuny.edu/.
4.) Add your blog to the class blogroll. Just put your name and the url for your blog in the boxes on the right and click “Add Link.”
5.) Add the “Share Blogroll” widget to your “Dashboard” so that links to everybody’s blogs will appear on your page.
7.) Leave a comment to this post when you’re all signed up and introduce yourself: Give a first impression of the class, ask a question, tell us about one of your favorite books or something interesting about brains (or your brain), or say what you want to get out of the class.
