NOTICE FROM THE DEPT. OF MASS MEDIA
STUDENTS, THE WORLD IS ONLINE!
We have moved from offline to online learning students are moving to online learning who may never before have attended an online
meeting, especially for the purposes of receiving instruction or carrying on an academic discussion with others. Following are the guidelines for online behaviour and
(netiquette) to ensure a healthy academic enviroment at the college.
1. Audio / Video on mute always: Keep audio and video always on mute on your phone/computer/laptop, unless asked by the Faculty.
2. Automatic marking of attendance: Your attendance shall be marked automatically in the system once you log in via your user ID, therefore there’s no need to do this separately.
3. Using proper ID for login:Any student caught using wrong user ID shall be immediately asked to leave the lecture. Action shall be taken against both, the person using wrong login ID and the person to whom such login ID belongs.
4.Choose simple and clear words: Doubts should be asked in the simplest language for better communication. Any attempt to use sarcasm, abusive language, unnecessary humor, violating any of the above codes of conduct shall be considered a major act of indiscipline and would be dealt with the Management.
5. Login ID Confidentiality: Any act of indiscipline done from your login ID shall be considered as done by you. Therefore you are required to take proper care of your login ID and password and not share the same with anyone else under any circumstances.
6. Faculty’s discretion to mark attendance: Faculty taking the lecture shall have the right to mark a student absent or present depending on case to case. The decision taken by faculty in this regard shall be final.
7. Use of Chatbox : Clarify doubts only via the chat facility provided in the application used to take the online lecture.Do not use chat facility for any purpose other than asking doubts or responding to a question asked by faculty.Respond in only Yes and No in the chat box (and not via audio) when asked about a concept being understood or not.
8. Use audio/video only if specifically instructed : In case you cannot explain your doubt via chat or in case your doubt is not understood by faculty via chat, you can ask your doubt via audio only with prior permission of faculty or if the faculty asks you to use your audio for the same.
9. Avoid background noises while using audio/video : Avoid any kind of background noises while asking your doubts via audio, this can be done by ensuring that you attend lecture from a quiet and enclosed place.
10. Important Etiquette: Dress appropriately as you would if you were present in college. Participating fully may look different depending on what your teacher is expecting of you at any particular moment. At times, your teacher will be leading the class in a discussion and this is when it is most important to speak up and share your thoughts.Communicate with your instructor about any issues you’re experiencing.
11. Keep up with all assignments:Adopt a mindset that each day you will put in a solid day’s work on learning. Give yourself little breaks and set micro-goals to ensure that you keep up the motivation.
12. Check your email regularly: There are a few reasons that checking your email regularly will be important. First, your teachers will be emailing you assignments, instructions, and links to online meetings. While they will try to keep the schedule they have announced, it is always possible that a teacher could experience a disruption of some kind that requires them to reschedule. Checking your email ensures that you will receive these notices in a timely manner and be able to adjust your schedule for the day.
It is also possible that a teacher will have to clarify something that was misunderstood or said incorrectly in an online meeting by email afterward. If you go merrily on your way with the assignment, without checking your email, you may encounter difficulties that could have been avoided.
