COURTESY AND RESPECT: Each course is a learning community and these actions apply online as well as in a classroom.
PARTICIPATE: It's not enough to show up, comment, share and make your presence known.
BE PERSISTENT: If you run into difficulties, don't wait! Send a note immediately to the instructor.
SHARE: There are no dumb questions and even if you think your solution is obvious, share it. Someone in the course will thank you.
THINK: Before you send that message...did you say what you meant? How will the person who reads it perceive your message? Read over what you've written BEFORE you send it.
REMEMBER: Sarcasm doesn't translate well into a written message (we can't see your face), and others can't read your mind and fill in the gaps if you abbreviate your comments. Clearly say what you mean.
NO INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS: Unacceptable! Same goes for derogatory statements. The same disciplinary action that applies in a classroom
applies online, too.
PLAGIARISM AND CHEATING: This is seriously wrong! Read the policies!
DON'T WAIT: Time management and organizational skills are very important in online classes. DO NOT wait until the last minute to turn in your assignments.
