In addition to providing you with your Instructor’s contact information, the Contact the Instructor area allows you to pose questions to your Instructor via replying to the Contact the Instructor Discussion Thread. Before posing a question to your Instructor in the Contact the Instructor area though it is important to determine whether or not the question is appropriate to be asked in this area.

It is important to note that the Contact the Instructor area is visible to the entire class. Therefore, if the answer to the question that you would like to ask your instructor may be beneficial to the entire class, it would be appropriate to pose the question here in the Contact the Instructor area. For instance, if you had a question about what should be included in the content of your assignment or when a particular assignment is due, it may be beneficial to ask these questions in the Contact the Instructor area.

On the other hand, if your question is of a personal nature you should not use the Contact the Instructor area to ask the question. Questions of a personal nature can be posed to your Instructor using their contact information in this area or the Send Email tool in the Tools area on the left navigation bar.
