6. Last but not least: on practicing etiquette about our course blog:

6.1 Commentators should leave their name and email address, once they comments on an entry. Why: i need to know how involve you are in our blog. For whatever reason, you would like to comment and remain anonymous, please do as you wish. But remember, i won’t be able to keep track of how involve you are in our class participation, and therefore won’t be able to give you extra grade.

6.2 Bloggers: I already informed you indicators that make an good entry (my last announcement). If in your entry you quote from other source (wiki, internet source, text book, newspaper, etc) you have to cite the sources: in (), or as reference at the end of the entry, or italic script……even it is just a paragraph or a few sentences.

example: According to “insert source”, there are X% of different Y.

I consider plagiarism is a lethal practice (not only you get 0 points for the course, you can also get a chance to talk to school principal and convince her/him to not dismiss you out of school!), and I won’t tolerate such a practice neither.

Thank you and see you all Saturday,
