At TAFE SA, we are committed to providing an environment where all participants are engaged in safe, respectful, fair and inclusive learning opportunities.
In this ‘new normal’ blended delivery model, a percentage of classes are delivered via online platforms like Collaborate, Microsoft Teams, Skype and Zoom. This brings a new element to class norms and agreed standards of behaviour. All
communication is governed by TAFE SA policy and procedure, government legislation and the law.
Online classes are often recorded so students can review material or catchup if they missed a class. Use of respectful behaviour in both the video and chat elements of these platforms is essential. The online environment is the same as being
onsite in a classroom.
Our Student Policies and Responsibilities provide information on
the expected code of behaviour and the policies that address behaviour in all TAFE SA learning forums.
The BBC website defines the word netiquette as a word that is a combination of ’net’ (from internet) and ‘etiquette’.
It means respecting other users’ views and displaying common courtesy when posting your views to online discussion groups.
Here are some tips on how to practice conventual ‘netiquette’ in the TAFE SA online environment:
