Unformatted text preview: 01 - spring B02) Be sure to include your name and student ID at the end of your email message. Communication within Course While email may be utilized for casual communication, graded class discussions and group collaboration are conducted inside the discussion board tool of your Blackboard course. Since this also is the primary place for making impressions both socially and academically, create messages that convey you at your best. Proper netiquette can help you be successful. Netiquette, or network etiquette, refers to the generally accepted rules for considerate behavior in online communications. Some tips to keep in mind: 1. Spend time crafting your message. This is not a text-messaging environment for quick, abbreviated conversation; it is a place for the exchange of academic knowledge. Use words that contribute to this purpose in a professional, concise manner. 2. Be sure to check your words for correct spelling and grammar. Do not write in all capital letters: it’s rude. Be sparing with your use of font weights like bold, italics, and underline. 3. Basic courtesy goes a long way to a good online experience. Respond politely and promptly, be patient, and appreciate differences. No vulgar, sexist, racist, biased, or other objectionable language will be tolerated. 4. Valid criticism is acceptably expressed in the form of thoughtful alternatives. Do not insult or “flame” others. 5. Respect one another’s privacy. Do not share e-mail addresses without permission. Do not allow anyone from outside the course to access the discussions without the previous permission of the instructor and all other group members. 6. Be careful about sharing your own personal information, especially usernames and passwords. Liberty University, 1971 University Boulevard, Lynchburg, VA 24502 434-582-2000...
