You know that your online course has a teacher. But how do you get in touch with your teacher? Should you use text? Phone? Skype? Bat signal?

Your teacher will not always work at the same time as you do. Because you do not always work at the same time, your primary method of communication is email. In this lesson, we will go over the D2L email tool, netiquette, and communication expectations.
