Communicating Online

When communicating online in a text-based environment, it pays to remember that you will not have all of those non-verbal cues that you get in an on-ground classroom and neither will your instructor or fellow students. Words on the screen or in a file help the instructor “see” you much more clearly. Keeping this in mind, communications should be clearly stated and the same courtesies and respect used in a classroom setting should be used online.

As always, effective communication is critical to success. It is even more important in the online environment because your instructor cannot see the quizzical look on your face or hear the question in your voice. Online, you will be responsible for initiating more contact with your instructor and classmates and staying current on all assignments.
