Add Examples or Tutorials

Everyone now has an opportunity to make an avatar. Making an avatar is a fun way of introduction for new students and teachers. And for participants in a Mooc.

I would like you all to make an avatar (please do a search on Internet to learn more about avatars and how to make them) You could paint, use textile or any material (and make a photo of it), or use a computer program.

You are encouraged to support and to help each other.

It will help us if you could write a text on the process of making and / or on the meaning of your avatar.

Make an avatar that can be used in the next months.

Publish your avatar in your blog, or Twitter or in a Facebook group on this MOOC.

And put your avatar in your contact info in Google+

Let us know when you are ready.

I do this avatar-make in new groups and classes and students really like it. And it helps them to get to know each other in the group. And I do learn their names very quick. 😉
