Netiquette is a set of rules for acceptable behaviour online. We wish to foster a safe online environment. All opinions and experiences -no matter how different or controversial they may be perceived -must be respected in the tolerant spirit. You are encouraged to comment, question or critique an idea but you are not to attack an individual. Working as a community of learners, we can build a polite and respectful community setting.
The following netiquette tips* will enhance the learning experience for everyone in the gathering:
- Give other participants the opportunity to join in the discussion.
- Present ideas appropriately. Do not use profane or offensive language.
- Becautious in using Internet language. For example, do not capitalize all letters since this suggest shouting or use acronyms (ex. LOL, btw, etc.).
- Popular emoticons such as can be helpful to convey your tone but do not overdo it or overuse them.😀
