As you can see, my name is Bry (short for Bryan). My creative juices weren't flowing this morning when trying to come up with a name, so I plan on changing my display name soon :).
Some background info: I am an Educational Technology professional exploring this site hoping to learn more about MOOCs and gamification of online courses and connect with people who have the same interests. I also plan on using shivtr to apply gamification practices to manage team projects.
Welcome, we are anxious to get started again too. In the meantime there are those Wednesday chats, and most of the people involved in presenting the MOOC do check in every day or so just to make sure we welcome everyone and see what is going on. My name is one that is a combination of my old race car number and the fact my mother always said I was a grasshopper like my dad, that I enjoyed life too much and would end up dying broke in the cold.
