Student emails: A creative video guide to email etiquette

While many students have mastered the art of email, others tend to take “poetic license” – unclear subject lines, omitted course name or student ID, or even an occasional use of an emoticon!


If you’re an instructor, suggest students hone their email communication skills by watching a short instructional video produced by Teaching and Learning Services. Share the link with students through myCourses and add the link to your course outlines!

If you’re a student, get together with some friends, take out some snacks, and sit back to enjoy this brief instructional video.
