How to Comment

Our blogs are learning blogs, not social blogs, therefore our comments will be "academic comments".

ACADEMIC COMMENTING- WHAT TO DO 

  • Acknowledge the author of the blog post (start with Dear, To, Hi..... and finish with Regards or From)
  • Make sure you have checked spelling, grammar and re-read your post to make sure it makes sense.
  • One word comments are not very useful. Writing just “cool” or “nice” are not very helpful and don't let the author of the blog post really know what you are thinking.
  • Always be polite.

A good comment should:

  • Be related or connected to the content of the post (keep on the topic!).
  • Continuing a conversation started in the post or in other comments.
  • Agree or challenges someone’s point of view AND give reasons.
  • Add something to the author’s post in form of a :
    • your opinion
    • a compliment
    • question
    • connection
    • idea
