RSIA Student Virtual Expectations

 

  1. Classroom Expectations
    • Visibility- Remain visible the duration of class. You can use a virtual background to not reveal your environment. If you do not remain visible, you will be placed in the waiting room. Make sure your virtual background does not have movement.
    • Microphone- When you enter the virtual meeting, mute yourself (if you are not already). You can request to be unmuted when it is your turn to speak.
    • Etiquette- Always use appropriate language, be polite and respectful, pay attention to the speaker, silence and put away personal devices, wear appropriate clothing, be on time, and use the digital platform and its features appropriately.
    • Contributions- When you have something to contribute to the discussion, type it in the chat box OR use the “raise hand” button for the teacher to give you permission to unmute yourself to speak.
      • When you have a question, type it in the chat box OR use the “raise hand” button so that you can unmute and ask your question.
    • Sound- If you can, wear headphones so you can hear better. Try your best to find a quiet place, free from distractions.
    • Academic Honesty- All work must be completed by you. Plagiarism or submission of someone else’s work is not permitted.
    • Name- Use your computer username. You will not be allowed into class without the use of your username.
