College of Education Forum

An Introduction to College of Education (COE) Forum
The California State University, Sacramento, College of Education (COE) provides an online forum, or discussion board for students located at http://coeforum.csus.edu/ubbthreads.php

The forum is used for scholarly student-to-student communication. Student work posted to the forum is read by all other students in the course and is available via the Internet to the outside world. Therefore, please compose your responses carefully and do your best work, so as to reflect positively upon the the University. Please read and follow these 'core rules' of netiquette found in Virginia Shea's book on Internet Etiquette and remember to use the FAQ page on the forum for answers to specific questions about using the COE forum.

We suggest that you compose your response using a word processing program, such Word or Notepad, and then post a copy to the forum. Composing your response directly within the forum's text editor may result in a loss of work during your first few attempts at posting. Additionally, you may still need to edit your response using the forum's text editor because it has a few little HTML quirks.

Carefully read the instructions for each assignment and double check to see that all questions have been addressed and run spell check one last time before posting.

Students will need an e-mail account and computer access to the Web. All Sacramento State students enrolled in one or more units can create a SacLink account for e-mail. Although a home computer with Internet access running Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Netscape Navigator would be beneficial, students can access the Internet from one of the campus student labs. Check out System Check and Computer Hardware Recommendations for more information about equipment.
