Code of Conduct for WS Gate Club &

“Netiquette” rules (same as FUSD for Online Learning)

To make sure you sound respectful, polite and knowledgeable when you are in an online learning environment, please use the following “netiquette” suggestions:

Normal code of conduct:

    1. Make sure you are on time –Admission won’t be allowed 5 mins after the class start.

    2. Do NOT miss any classes without prior notice. Else, student might be dropped from the club.

    3. Do NOT do other activities (including homework) during the TGIF sessions. All students must participate in club activities.

    4. Do NOT present any disruptive behavior or break any other rules. Behavior yellow slips will be given in such cases.

Live Sessions:

    1. Make sure your video is on.

    2. Make sure your microphone is muted.

    3. Use your full name--no nicknames or abbreviations.

    4. Make sure to use the “raise hand” feature, just as you would in the classroom.

    5. Respect the opinions of your classmates. If you feel the need to disagree, do so respectfully. Do not badmouth others or call them names.

    6. Remember to say "Please" and "Thank you" when asking for help from your classmates or teacher.

Online Posts/Chat Messages:

    1. Stay on topic. Do not post irrelevant comments, links, thoughts or pictures.

    2. Do not write anything angry/sarcastic, even as a joke. Without hearing your tone, others might not realize you're joking.

    3. Do not use acronyms; you are in an academic setting and need to spell out words. 10. Do not type in ALL CAPS! If you do, it will look like you are yelling at others.

    4. Be concise and employ good writing strategies.

    5. If you refer to something your classmate said, quote a few lines from their post so others know which post you're referencing.

    6. Run a spelling/grammar check before posting. Use complete words and sentences in all posts.

    7. Before asking a question, check the course content/assignment or other student posts to see if the answer is easy to find.

    8. Reach out to your teacher if you have any questions/issues. They are here to help, even virtually!
