Decorum for Live Classes:
Like an in-person HLN classroom, our online classrooms are informed by traditional pedagogy. A knowledgeable, enthusiastic teacher carefully leads students into an understanding of each subject. Classrooms are quiet, orderly, and disciplined. Lessons are incremental, content is age-appropriate.
Come ready to participate fully.
Use your real name on the screen.
Use an unmodified background.
Be in dress code.
Turn your video on so your teacher can see you.
Raise your hand for permission to speak.
Have your device on a flat service, preferably at eye level.
Students’ full attention should be on the class and they should not communicate virtually during class on other devices with classmates or others (e.g. texting on a phone while in class on another device, or in another open window in the device).
Be prepared with class materials and pens/pencils/highlighters before class.
