WI Forum Etiquette Guidelines

The purpose of Wilmette Institute courses is to promote knowledge, insights and service in a unified manner. To enhance the learning experience for all participants, we have provided the following guidance for posting in Wilmette Institute forums. By using the forums you are agreeing to follow these guidelines.

It is very important not to read negative feelings into other’s postings. In Wilmette Institute courses the students come from many cultures and may not understand English well. We urge you to be as courteous and polite as possible. If you think you might have hurt someone’s feelings, it may be a good idea to apologize. You can write students and faculty privately if that might help smooth the waters; the course provides a way to do this.

Internet connection/required skills and equipment: 
It is strongly recommended that learners have a broadband (cable modem or DSL) Internet connection, and their own computer or laptop with up-to-date software, including the free Adobe Acrobat Reader. The Moodle course management platform works through the Internet, and can be easily accessed on either a Windows PC or a Mac. Each learner must have their own email address, and must be able to speak and write English. Basic computer and Internet browsing skills are required of all learners.

Mobile apps: Moodle also has mobile apps for both Apple and Android devices (see download.moodle.org/mobile/ or visit your App Store). These apps are helpful as supplementary tools, but should not be the only point of access to Wilmette Institute courses.
