Communication Etiquette Guidelines

The following guidelines are to be used for communication within SK Online:

  1. Prior to sending or posting your work, review it for spelling and grammar errors and to make sure it says exactly what you want it to say. ( In other words, proof-read.)
  2. Be brief and stay on topic, but do provide specific details or information.
  3. Check your messages daily and respond promptly.
  4. When sending attachments, make sure they are appropriate and that the file size is as small as possible, especially with photos images.
  5. Never post, send, or forward messages containing defamatory, offensive, racist, or obscene remarks. Be tactful.
  6. For privacy, never publicly reveal your address, phone number, or anything too personal.
  7. If a fellow student sends you a message that you feel is inappropriate, please contact your instructor.
  8. Whenever possible, cite your references.
