Netiquette and Online Behavior

You've mastered the art of fine dining and table manners, but have you considered your behaviors in the online environment? In this module, you will have the opportunity to examine your own personal communication skills. Since communication in an online course is often more formal than that of a public discussion board, we will address the following topics in this module:

  • What is netiquette? What behaviors should I exhibit in an online course?
  • What are the expectations for my participation in a synchronous environment?
  • What are the expectations for my participation in an asynchronous environment?
  • Where can I find resources for addressing and learning more about netiquette?

By the end of this module, you will be able to differentiate and identify different forms of communication and online behavior in an online course. If you are looking for further resources regarding netiquette and online behavior, additional links will be provided in this module for your review.
