All course activities should be aimed at moving students towards the learning outcomes, including class introductions. This article provides detailed instructions for implementing an online Class Session Introductions (CSI) activity that immediately engages students with their peers, the content and the instructor. The activity may be useful to instructors when creating sub-groups or peer teams and differentiating learning activities in future course activities and assignments. Additionally, the article focuses on how the CSI activity might be used to assess students’ prior content knowledge, align students’ expectations with course outcomes and identify students’ learning styles and dominate intelligence; all of which can be used to enhance the e-learning experience for students. Examples and illustrations are also included.
