If you decide to provide your profile details or participate in online discussions, be very cautious about posting your contact information or other highly personal information.
Always remember that any information you post in the discussion forums (discussion boards) or in the chat room can be read by everyone else in the course.
The only way to be completely safe online is to never share your personal information. Your personal information (e.g., last name, social insurance number, or phone number) can be used to locate you. Share only a minimum amount of personal information and be careful when you participate online.
Etiquette: Type only what you would say to someone's face. If you wouldn't say it to another student standing next to you, don't say it online.
