Netiquette Guidelines

Keep all postings to class‐related content, such as the textbook readings, videos, and assignments.
Use caution when discussing personal matters; the discussion board is for general comments.
Ask each other for advice, suggestions, and tips to improve the quality of class work.
Encourage each member of the class to do the best work possible.

Don't challenge or attack others; the discussions are meant to stimulate conversation, not create contention.
Avoid all defamatory, profane, threatening, offensive, or illegal materials; do not post anything in a message that you would not want the world to see, or you would not want anyone to know came from you.
Avoid using the discussion board as a forum for complaints; any relevant issues should be brought to the professor's attention in a private e‐mail.
Don't use inappropriate language toward other students and/or the professor.
Any violation of the standards of appropriate behavior online will be reported to the Dean of Students and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken by the college.
