Netiquette is short for internet etiquette. A code of behaviour for communications on the web. It arose in the early years of the internet to address the difficulties fast emerging in online communications, from frustration and misunderstanding at one end of the spectrum, to unpleasantness and sheer malice at the other.
The module shows you what netiquette is and why it is important for wellbeing.
After completing this module, you will be able to:
- Adopt and tailor netiquette
- Share and improve netiquette for use by learners and colleagues.
