DON’T Abuse chat forums and email to communicate: While you need to be assertive in expressing your needs, opinions and ideas in class discussions, don’t go overboard!
Sending too many emails to your instructors or classmates can be overwhelming. Treat email like you’re having an in-person, back-and-forth conversation.
Be respectful and responsive: With online communication, it’s important to understand people might misconstrue what you said, no matter how carefully you composed it.
Be aware of how you use class discussion boards, whether to ask a question to the group or make a point about a learning topic
Don’t Shout: Remember that when you type in all capitals, your communication comes across as shouting.
