  • Participating regularly in online activities
  • Working with peers to complete projects
  • Completing assignments on time
  • Being self-motivated and self-disciplined
  • Contributing ideas, perspectives, and comments to the course discussion
  • Using critical thinking and decision making
  • Thinking ideas through before responding
  • Communicating clearly in writing
  • Being polite and respectful
  • "Speaking up" if problems arise
  • Showing what you've learned
  • Being open minded about sharing life, work, and educational experiences
