Communicating in your online courses
Your courses will include online discussion forums. For most courses, you will be expected to spend some time every week working on assignments or activities that will take place in discussion forums, and some of this work may be assessed. You may also use email and chat to work with classmates. Some courses include learning activities using wiki or blog tools, and some courses include real-time discussions or seminars.
The resources on this page will make you a more effective online communicator with your classmates and your instructors.
