Record a short video telling everyone what three things we should see in your home city. [Or if you live in a village/small town, talk about the city closest to your home town]. Post your video in our discussion board [or post a link to your video.]
After posting your video, watch the videos of two classmates and respond in the discussion forum. You can comment on what you liked in their video or if there is something in their home city that is just like your home city.
**This sort of icebreaker will allow learners to get to know each other early in the course. It’s a non-threatening way for them to ease into the course requirements of regularly interacting with classmates**
