TTP Fall 2014 – Week#1 & 2: Getting Oriented & Acquainted

The goal of the first two weeks is to get oriented to the course, acquainted with each other, and get set up with some of the accounts and tools we’ll be using (and to grab your first plate of goodies from the buffet).

Week#1 Tasks:

  • Go to and Create a gmail account if you don’t already have one. (this ID might be used for public posting. If you want to remain anonymous online, please choose a pseudonym – don’t use your real name as an ID).
  • When logged in to your Gmail, go to Jeff’s Google+ Page and add him  to your ‘circles’.
  • Create a Blog by going to or clicking the ‘Google Matrix/More/Blogger’ from your Gmail menu.  Blogger Guide here.  Create your first blog post about anything you like.
    To see some examples of what you can do with a ‘Blogger’ blog check out the ones below.

    • If you’d like to update your Google+ Profile, go to and click ‘Profile/About/Edit Profile’.
    • We will go over the Tips & Tricks page in class week#2. If you have any questions, take another look and/or ask Jeff for clarification.
