Q&A Forum

When posting on the online Q&A Forum, consider the protocols that apply to emails and use the following additional conventions:

1. For the self-introduction, create a new thread to post a well-written introduction of yourself. Feel free to elaborate as much as you want but exercise good judgment in what you choose to share and avoid disclosing non-public or competitively sensitive information. Respect the confidentiality of what others are willing to share. Feel also free to reply to others' posts.

2. Feel free to post questions, answers, and/or comments to the Q&A Forum. Do not repost a question that has been asked. Use the “Reply” button to answer a question or comment on someone else’s answer. Create a new thread for a new question. Feel free to share any feedback to help improve the course content and delivery.

3. If you would like to contact your classmates, the academic coaches, or the instructor, use email rather than the Q&A Forum. However, in cases where the whole class may benefit from the answer to your question, the instructor retains the right to post such answer in Canvas as an announcement emailed automatically to everybody (of course without mentioning your name)

Accessibility Services for Students with Disabilities: CCV strives to mitigate barriers to course access for students with documented disabilities. To request accommodations, please

  1. Provide disability documentation to the Accessibility Coordinator at your academic center. https://ccv.edu/discover-resources/students-with-disabilities/
  2. Request an appointment to meet with accessibility coordinator to discuss your request and create an accommodation plan.
  3. Once created, students will share the accommodation plan with faculty. Please note, faculty cannot make disability accommodations outside of this process.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
