- What rules of netiquette does the student violate in this email?
The student has violated the following netiquettes:
Emotions: The student has written an email that has avoided to focus on his/her wrongdoings and asked the teacher for an undue favor followed by a “:-)” that I believe is an inappropriate use of emotions.
Shouting: I believe that the capitalization of words at different instances is not appropriate and can be called “Shouting” in relation to netiquettes.
- If you were the instructor, how might you react to this email? What questions would you have about it?
I would be angered by the email but as an instructor I would control my emotions and ask the following questions:
- When was the last time you logged in to your Blackboard?
- Don’t you think that it would be a good idea if you logged in to your Blackboard and look for yourself what assignments you need to do?
- I am sorry, I cannot give you full credits for a long due assignment. Don’t you think it would not be fair to the other students who return their assignments on time?
- Rewrite the e-mail so that it is consistent with good netiquette.
I would like to apologize to you as I have not been punctual at class for the last few weeks due to some unforeseen circumstances. I did not log into Blackboard during this time and when I did, I was unable to find the description of some assignments that I need to return to you. Can you please send me the description for the assignments from Week 3, 6,7 and 8?
I have attached my assignment from the first week with this email. Please consider this assignment for grading.
