Whether teaching an online or on-campus class, there is one essential factor of which all instructors must be aware—namely, the importance of effective introductions on the first day of class.

Preparing to Teach Your First Course
Preparing to teach your first course can be intimidating. Colleges, universities, and other educational institutions have required materials such as selected textbooks, curricula, and syllabi that are necessary to begin your teaching experience.

Etiquette on the Net - Netiquette
Netiquette, commonly known as online etiquette, is a social code for network communication, which outlines behavioral expectations when communicating or collaborating with others online, via e-mail, in chat rooms, or on discussion boards.
Exercise and Learning
