Netiquette & other info

During Online classes remember you are in your classmate’s/teacher’s house, so be acceptable of noises, people walking pass or incidents. Nobody is perfect, no house is perfect, your teacher is not perfect. Don’t be critical, be flexible!

In case of a Online Seminars: when logging in to Zoom, make sure to mute your MIC and turn on your camera. In case of a weak connection slowing the video, or anything that prevents you from having your camera on, please make sure to have a photo on your profile with your name/preferred pronouns on. It is very disturbing to teach a black square.


In an Online Seminar, as you log in write your name on the chat. This is how I collect the attendance.

Log in to Zoom by using SSO, otherwise you will be locked out and unable to attend the session. This is an important step to prevent hacking, and it is your responsibility to log in using your university credentials.

Fill in your profile on Canvas, Zoom, Teams. Make sure to upload a photo. We are working online and having full profiles is a good way to build an identity and be part of a learning community.

We are using a different pedagogy, called Flexible Learning. This module is delivered in a blended mode, which combines Autonomous Assynchronous work and PiP. Students are expected to complete the tasks marked as Guided Learning (estudo orientado: tarefas prévias) prior to all Seminars.

Obrigada a todes!
