Developing an Online "Code of Conduct"
AACE Journal, v13 n2 p127-136 Apr 2005
There are an increasing number of classes being offered via the World Wide Web. Although much of the information that we review regarding online learning seems positive, difficulties can arise. In particular, the anonymity that a web course can provide can be a blessing and a curse. In this article, the author suggests developing an online code of conduct detailing proper and improper conduct within the course learning environment. The author details prescriptions for the design and development of such a policy and how to manage potential problems before they begin.
