About Cell Phones, IPhones and IStuff ("HANDS OFF POLICY")
Before entering the classroom, turn off all cell phones, SmartPhones, IStuff, and other electronic
devices. These devices are disruptive and their use during a lecture is rude to the class and instructor.
- No electronic devices should be in your hands during class. This means no fiddling with your phones,
reading/sending text messages, etc.
- If you are expecting an important phone call or are compelled to play with Apps, do not attend class.
- If you feel you have a legitimate reason to use an electronic device in the classroom, see me to
obtain explicit permission.
This course utilizes BlackboardLearn
to facilitate online communication between course participants. Please keep in mind the following "Rules of Netiquette"
when communicating online.
- The rules of the classroom are the same regardless of location. Remember just because you're interacting
online, doesn't mean you stop having respect for your professors, and fellow classmates. You're communicating
with a real person, not a computer screen.
- Remember your audience. When communicating online it's important to remember who you're
communicating with. When sending a message to a professor, please refrain from using "text speak". For
example, Shakespeare never intended for you to type "2B or not 2B". Also, stay away from typing in all
capital letters; it will appear as if you're shouting.
- Avoid strong language. Language can easily be misinterpreted in an online setting. Be
sure to review your work before submitting, making sure the reader won't be able to misinterpret it as strong,
or offensive. Sarcasm doesn't translate well online. Your audience can't see your facial expressions, or body
language. Try to be as straight forward and professional as possible.
- Read everything, twice. Be sure to thoroughly read all course materials before beginning
to work on your assignments. If you have a question, or need clarification, re-read the materials. You may
have glanced over an important detail the first time. If you're still having difficulties, then e-mail your
- Review all materials before submitting. When responding to discussion board posts, be
sure to read all previous postings before you post your own. This way you won't duplicate someone else's
comments. Also, it's a good idea to write, and save your work in Microsoft Word first. In case of a
technical issue, you have a backup copy.
