Once you are registered in a class that uses Serendip Studio, you will be given an on-line account,
and will have received an e-mail from the site administrator, with an assigned username and password.
Use those to log in to the course website. (If you can't find that e-mail, go to the login screen, and click to
"request new password." If you log in once and don't change your password, you will also need to
request a new one. If you had an earlier Serendip account, which has been unused for a while,
it's possible that there will be a block on it. If you can't login, send an email to
/exchange/contact-serendip, and we'll take care of it quickly.)
Give careful consideration to the matters of the username and avatar which will appear w/ each of your postings:
After logging in, you can click on "my account" and change your username to something of your choice.
Think about whether you want your words associated w/ your (full/partial/symbolic/pseudo-) name,
and whether you will want it so associated in 1, 2, 5 years....the content will remain on-line long after you've left the College.
To upload your avatar--a picture of yourself/symbol of your way of thinking/habit of being--
go to "My account" --> "Edit" --> "Upload picture," and follow the instructions there
Always log in before you post, so that what you have written will appear automatically and immediately
(otherwise, due to the need for spam control, it will need to be individually vetted, and so delayed).
AND BE SURE TO TAG YOUR AUDIENCE (after the text block).
If you use Word to compose your post, please copy and paste it using the "W" icon;
otherwise you may end up displaying lots of wierd formatting.
If you want to embed an image, or attach a document, see instructions below the text block.
If you want to embed a video in your post, go here for instructions.
We're looking forward to our virtual conversation as well as those we'll be having in person.
Stay calm, and contact /exchange/contact-serendip if you have questions about the process.
