- What: I request that you submit a photo of yourself to me,
add a photo to your forum account, and even include a photo in emails.
- I am very bad with names. (Sorry)
- Emails and tests are effectively anonymous.
- I want to encourage and reward people for contributing in class with
10% of the mark. I will use the photo to remember who you are.

recommendation. For this, I will have to remember who you are.

If you would like a better rapport with your emails, please include a

- Photo in Forum:
At the present time, students cannot control their usernames on
the forum. The username is simply the students login name. On the
other hand, you or any of your students can go into the "User Control
Panel" (Under the "York" logo, you will see "Board index", then "User
Control Panel"), select the "Profile" tab, then "Edit avatar". You
can upload a picture and you will see that picture by the username."
- Subscribing to Forum:
I communicate to you via the Forum. You are also encouraged to talk to
each other this way. To be sure that you know when something has
been posted, it is important to subscribe to the course forum.
Be sure you have not just subscribed to one of the topics within
the course forum.
The method of subscribing is more confusing than it should be.

wrong. PS. I didn't set my email address myself. It was set to
email@example.com but my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. See
