Here's How - Netiquette
Classroom management and communication in the online world would not be complete without a mention of Netiquette.
Having students familiar with standard rules of netiquette at the beginning of the course will go a long to mitigating difficulties and misunderstandings later on.
Following the guidelines of netiquette is much the same as following face-to-face classroom rules and guidelines.
Samples of netiquette from Palloff and Pratt (2007) include:
- Focusing on one subject per message.
- Avoid using all capitals (it will seem like you are shouting.)
- Use humor carefully - it may be misinterpreted.
