Chat Synchronous Optional group collaboration Optional material reviews Chat rules
Basic Rules for the Virtual Classroom 1. Remember at all times that this is a public, academic exchange. Do not use this area for personal chats. 2. Keep your responses short. 3. Always pay attention to my instructions during the session. 4. If you see "STOP TYPING" from me it means to immediately stop typing and wait for me to ask for further input. 5. If other students give a response similar to what you are about to give, do not respond unless I ask for more responses. 6. All interactive sessions are stored in an archive and are available to all students in the class-- what you type is stored for all to see.
