Rule 2: Follow the Same Rules Online That You Follow in Real Life Be ethical Just because the computer can seem like a “barrier” between you and the other person or situation, that is not an excuse to lower your ethical standards. Breaking the law is bad netiquette If you are tempted to do something illegal in cyberspace, chances are, it’s bad netiquette.

Rule 3: Know Where You Are in Cyberspace Netiquette varies from domain to domain For example, on a TV series discussion board (such as what’s happening next on an MTV show), it may be perfectly fine to “gossip” about what your favorite character will do next.

    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.
