Hello, I was unable to add to the map but I will contribute to it through the comments. My expectation for my peers would be that all students show respect and support for each other. My expectation for the instructor would be that the instructor responds to student's concerns. Lastly, my expectation for the class would be that both students and instructor maintain a healthy online environment for learning.

Hello everyone! I am also apart of the group of students who are unable to add any comments or suggestions to the map. It is unfortunate, but I am sure we can figure it out together!

Just so that you all see I am participating -

Expectations for Class Content: I would love to learn how to make comments on mind42. Also, I hope that this class furthers my technological skills. Technology is becoming a huge part of education and I want to use it in my classroom in the future.

Expectations for Peers: I would appreciate thoughtful feedback on any discussions, assignments, etc. because I have never had an online class and I feel that will make it more beneficial!

Exceptions for the Instructor: I would expect the instructor to provide clear expectations and due dates for all assignments along with an occasional funny meme (because who doesn’t love funny memes?)!
