When posting material and responding to discussions keep in mind the following:

  • I can see who has posted material and who has added to a discussion.
  • Keep your posted material and responses relevant to class.
  • Only use language that is appropriate.
  • Write in complete sentences.
  • Inappropriate posts will not be tolerated and immediate action will be taken.
  • Follow the Internet Guidelines Below:


INTERNET GUIDELINES

1. THINK BEFORE YOU POST.
Do not post information and images that could put yourself at risk, embarrass you, or damage your future, such as:
➢ Full name
➢ Cell or home phone numbers
➢ Home address
➢ Mean or inappropriate messages
➢ Inappropriate pictures and videos

2. RESPECT OTHER PEOPLE ONLINE.
➢ Do not post anything rude, offensive, or threatening.
➢ Do not send or forward images and information that might embarrass, hurt, or harass someone.
➢ Do not take anyone's personal information and use it to damage his or her reputation.

3. PROTECT YOURSELF ONLINE.
If someone makes you feel uncomfortable or if someone is rude or offensive:
➢ Do not respond
➢ Save the evidence
➢ Tell your teacher.


Remember there's no such thing as "private" on the Internet.* You may think so, but it's not true. People can find anything they want — and keep what you post — forever.
