Comment guidelines

Many of the guidelines that apply to e-mail also apply to the use of discussions. Use the following conventions when composing a comment or discussion posting:

  1. If you want to send a personal message to the instructor or to another student, use e-mail rather than the discussion forum (see above E-mail Guidlines).
  2. Be patient. Don’t expect an immediate response when you post to the forum.
  3. Respect each other’s ideas, feelings and experience.
  4. Explore disagreements and support assertions with data and evidence.
  5. “Subject” headings: use something that is descriptive and refer to a particular discussion topic or task when applicable.
  6. Avoid posting large blocks of text. If you must, break them into paragraphs and use a space between paragraphs.
