Common Netiquette

  • Do not dominate any discussion. Give other students the opportunity to join in the discussion.
  • Do not use offensive language. Present ideas appropriately.
  • Be cautious in using Internet language. For example, do not capitalize all letters since this suggests shouting.
  • Popular emoticons such Smile as or / can be helpful to convey your tone but do not overdo or overuse them.
  • Avoid using vernacular and/or slang language. This could possibly lead to misinterpretation.
  • Never make fun of someone’s ability to read or write.
  • Share tips with other students.
  • Keep an “open-mind” and be willing to express potentially unpopular opinions. All opinions are respected.
  • Think and edit before you push the “Send” button.
