Please Help Others: The benefit of interactive education is that students can act as additional facilitators, and good teachers will allow themselves to learn from the students. No one is an expert in all-things technology. If you find that some of your students have more experience than others in using online discussion forums—and perhaps more experience than you—encourage them to be advocates and educators. This will not only give them a boost of confidence, but it will also help bring the other students up to speed. Furthermore, the students who receive help will probably appreciate it more than they will mention at the time, but will be more willing to help other students in the future.
Please No Flaming: The academic environment expects higher-order language. Do not tolerate tantrums on academic forums. Criticism, although a central part of academia, must be constructive, well-meaning, and well-articulated. Rants directed at any contributor are highly unacceptable. In addition, tell your students to avoid profanity. Keep it classy, people.
