BE PROMPT. More than in F2F classrooms, diligence in completing activities on time is critical in an Internet class. Often, your groupmates won't be able to complete an activity without your timely cooperation. If you need additional time, let your groupmates and the instructor know before the due date/time. They will understand if you need an additional 2-to-6 hours to complete an activity. However, you should not be late more than twice in the semester. If you're chronically late, expect everyone to be less patient. If you're registered in a hybrid (part F2F, part online) class, be sure attend all classes on time. If you fall out of the communication loop because of absence or tardiness, the instructor and your classmates won't have the time or inclination to review all that you missed. "I didn't know" is not an acceptable excuse. Being informed is your responsibility.
