10 Best Practices for Online Communication The following best practices apply to online Discussion, e-mail, and other forms of electronic communication, such as chat. 1. Use formatting wisely in e-mail and Discussions. TYPING IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS IS EQUIVALENT TO SHOUTING. Shouting at your readers makes them more likely to skim over what you have to say or ignore you completely. Use bold and italics sparingly in e-mail to indicate urgency; otherwise, you dampen their visual impact. Consider surrounding words and phrases with *asterisks* as an alternative means of providing emphasis. 2. Include identifying information on all e-mails. A signature block should include your formal name, your institution, and your contact information. Your institution may assign a student identification number to you that should be included in your e-mail signature or in the body of the e-mail message. 3. Pay attention to spelling and grammar.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
