For this assignment, create a userpage at Appropedia. Include a photograph, information about you, your interests and your experience.

While it would be ideal to see your real name and image there, please feel free to keep this information and photo very anonymous and vague, especially if you have any discomfort sharing publicly.

Instructions

1
Create an Appropedia account

If you haven't already, create a new Appropedia account following the steps listed on Help:Create account. Make sure to:

  • Create a user name that easily identifies you.
  • Set a strong password.
  • Confirm your email address.
For more information, see Help:Create account.
2
Go to your user page and start editing it by adding relevant information about yourself.

Use this as an opportunity to test how a wiki works. If you're curious about what you can do here on Appropedia, please check Help:Editing.

Make sure to:

  • Use your name (or a pseudonym), and location (for students, this is not mandatory —feel free to stay more anonymous if you desire).
  • Edit the placeholder photo to include one that you own (a photo of you, your pet or a nice scenery are good choices).
  • List your professional information.
  • Include your affiliation (i.e. Cal Poly Humboldt).
  • List at least three skills and interests related to the course.

Step 3: Post your user page on Canvas
