Strategies for Success
**It is the student's responsibility to initiate participation in each online class. **
- Online classes offer rich opportunities for individual participation and for collaboration in active learning activities that contribute to long-term learning and understanding.
- For group projects, others rely on your involvement, and you can learn from your classmates as well as teach them through your considered and well-supported contributions.
- Electronic submissions enable you to participate in meaningful conversations and academic arguments supported by evidence from your observations and research. Treat all your correspondents respectfully. Respect the privacy of your correspondents by keeping their messages within the class unless you have permission to reproduce them elsewhere.
- Be sure you place your messages to classmates, the professor, and others in context, giving enough information for your readers to understand the situation fully. Double check that your tone and diction are appropriate for an educational environment. As a member of the academic community, you are expected to conduct yourself in person, in print, and on
- line in a responsible way and in the spirit of courteous educational inquiry. Report any questions or concerns to your professor promptly
