Make sure you are starting a thread in the correct discussion board. Remember that if you post in the wrong one, you may not receive a grade for your participation or writing.
Always subscribe to your threads so that if your professor or a fellow classmate responds to your message, you can continue the conversation.
Do not include old replies with your new replies. The old replies will show up first and bury your new message.
Include as much information as possible. Being vague could hurt your grade or hinder you from getting help if you are asking a question. Including as many details as possible ensures you will receive the full credit, the best responses, and the most help.
Never use unprofessional or derogatory language!
