Overview:

Assignment Brief Description: For your first assignment, you will prepare a short 2-3
minute speech introducing yourself to your classmates. You may record the video using
your cell phone or webcam using the MindTap tools linked in Unit 1. You are
encouraged to watch each speech to get to know your classmates, but do not have to
comment on each for the discussion grade.

Instructions:

• In your speech, please address the following:
o What is your name or the name you preferred to be called?
o What part of the United States or world do you live in?
o What is your major at Post University?
o What are your future career goals?
o What kinds of communication skills are necessary to be successful in your

future career?
o How do you think future developments in technology and media may

change or impact your future career field?

MindTap Tools:

• You will record and save your speech in Bongo platform in Mindtap:
o Click on the MindTap Content folder link in the Unit.

o Return to the Unit in Blackboard, click on the assignment, and type ”Done”

in the box for it to be graded.

Tips and Guidelines:

• Pay attention to your presentation style. Be sure to speak loudly and clearly so
the audience can hear you.

• Record your video in a small, quiet space with plenty of light and be sure there is
no audio feedback on the recording.

• Position yourself in the center of the frame so your facial expressions and other
body language are in clear view.
