A lot has changed in the last few months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As schools and colleges transitioned to online learning at a rapid pace, virtual etiquette has become more important to understand and practice.
It’s important to recognize that a virtual class or meeting is still a class or meeting. So you want to conduct yourself with the same level of professionalism and respect as you would in person. Following the guidelines below will make sure you’re prepared to participate in a virtual environment.
It’s always best to use common sense when communicating virtually. In the same way that you would conduct yourself in person to make a positive impression, do the same in a virtual environment. A lot of what we communicate is non-verbal (body language, tone, etc.). Be aware and intentional with how you conduct yourself virtually and your experience will be a positive one!
