Netiquette is the expectations of appropriate behavior and interaction while in theonline course.1.The first thing we all need to remember is that while we are online, we are allstill humans. Please treat everyone with the same dignity and respect youwould if you were in a face-to-face course. Your comments should not bepersonal attacks in nature but constructive comments to support thelearning. Asking questions are an important part of this process.2.Participate in this course as if you would participate in a discussion with apeer. Make sure you log in often (2-3 times per week is the expectation) toread, comment, and reflect on one another’s post. Read what other peoplehave written, answer questions that are asked of you and do not wait untilthe last minute to post.3.Respect the learning process. Many of the assignments you will have in thecourse require you to collaborate with others. If you are not participating, youare preventing others from participating fully.4.Be clear and concise in your posts. Make sure you are answering the questionand responding with a thoughtful response.5.Language should be used at the collegiate level. In posts, avoid the use oftexting language. Keep this professional.6.Avoid the use of all caps to type a post. This is interpreted as yelling onlineand can be construed as disrespectful.7.Make sure your posts add something to the conversation. We do not want tojust say what someone else has said. We want to hear your original thoughts.8.Your replies should be more than "I agree". Why do you agree? How can youadd value to the discussion?9.No flaming. In a debate, be open-minded and respect the person's opinion.Back up your own opinion with proof to support your case. Do not resort toname-calling, inflammatory remarks, or tantrums.10Harris| University of North Texas
