Do's and Dont's in the Virtual World

Simple Practices to Virtually Show Your Respect for Others

As access and use of the internet become more popular, users will need to find a way that the same "social graces" that we learned as children carry over into our online worlds. It is important that each individual learn to follow the golden rule in a virtual setting. The golden rule states that one should “do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” This guiding principle embodies the RESPECT that is necessary to support online learning, interaction, and communication. When one has this RESPECT for other digital citizens, it prevents inappropriate conduct and facilitates a safe and supportive learning environment.
