Hi. Just wondering what people's opinions are about for the following questions. I was working on these for a class but am interested in what others think: Are emoticons and acronyms appropriate for students to use with their teacher in an academic setting? * Will you allow invented spellings, or will you expect students to always use correct grammar and punctuation whenever they are communicating in an academic environment? * Should the expectations be different for discussion boards, email or chat? In what ways can they differ and to what extent?
