1 Some Basic Rules of Netiquette Q. What is Netiquette? A. This is a set of rules or guidelines for appropriate online behaviour. As ‘netizens’ (citizens of the internet), and participants in this course, we must remember always to use the internet in a productive, constructive, and socially responsible manner. Here are some basic rules of Netiquette that you should observe at all times. 1. Think before you post. Remember that how things sound in your head is not necessarily how they come out on paper or online. 2. Re-read your post before you ‘send’: ask yourself if that is what you meant to say? If not, rephrase. At the same time if you’re not sure what someone else meant, ask for clarification. Don’t assume. 3. Be aware of your internet ‘tone’. For example, don’t use capital letters, as it reads like you are ‘yelling’ or being aggressive. Sometimes emojis are helpful

    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.
