Online Learning Community Response #1 Should Teachers & Students be Facebook Friends? Source: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/18/business/media/rules-to- limit-how-teachers-and-students-interact-online.html?_r=3 This article definitley raises some concern since this issue has many different viewpoints. Although I think it is important for students and teachers to develop strong relationships, I don't believe that students and teachers should be connected through social media outlets. Like you, I have some of my teachers' phone numbers, but only because it is provided to the class on a syllabus in case we need to reach him/her on the weekend. I feel that type of situation is acceptable, but I don't see any positives in being socially connected with teachers on-line. Although neither party may mean any harm by becoming Facebook friends, it doesn't look good to others. We always hear in the news, and most recently a scandal in my hometown, about inappropriate relationships between teachers and students.

What students are saying

    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.
