How Civil Environments Enhance Learning
Good Netiquette
The results of bad netiquette can throw off even the best of students. Bad netiquette includes disobeying any of the common courtesies of online interaction.
Bad Netiquette
Good netiquette includes following the rules listed previously. Netiquette has three basic principles:
Both constructive criticism and cooperative learning make a civil environment a more effective classroom.
Main Thesis
The online classroom is a much healthier place to learn when it's in a civil environment.

A civil environment is one in which all participating individuals feel safe and accomodated for. There are usually a set of rules followed to ensure amicability.

Good netiquette creates a healthy learning environment while bad netiquette can hinder learning.

Rules of Online Etiquette
Be concise and straight to the point (Spinks et al, 1999, 1)
Be careful when using humor
Try to use good grammar
Do not use a computer to harm other people
Do not "snoop around in other people's files" (Scheuermann, 1997, 1)
"Civility is consideration of others in interpersonal relationships, manners, politeness, and proper deportment" (Rieck, 2007, 426)
Constructive criticism is the phenomena of individuals pointing out the strengths and weaknesses of someone's work without being rude. Criticism allows people to adjust their work without detrimental effects to their feelings.
Cooperative learning is when groups of students work together towards a common academic goal. The purpose of cooperative learning is to develop amicability and professionalism among peers.
Good grammar and spelling
Polite conversation
Respectful attitude

Bad netiquette can easily scare off shy students. Students that are ridiculed for their ideas or presentation can be discouraged from posting their ideas online again, which hurts the overall quality of the classroom as a whole.
Rude interactions in online classrooms can distract teachers and other students. While everyone is too focused on challenging or dealing with the bad netiquette of one student, the education of the classroom as a whole gets diminished.
Put simply, bad netiquette makes for an unhealthy learning environment. In a classroom where bad netiquette is common, students will be discouraged to post insightful ideas and some students will avoid contributing altogether.
Summary
The online classroom is a much healthier place to learn in a civil environment; good netiquette creates a healthy learning environment while bad netiquette can hinder learning.
A civil environment is one in which all participating individuals feel safe and accommodated for.
Good netiquette relies on a civil online environment.
Bad netiquette in an online classroom can negatively affect the absorption of knowledge in students.
