I am attending college online and discussion board postings are a big part of the grade. All of the professors have clear expectations for the postings; APA citation, 400-500 words, academically sound resources and attention to spelling and grammar. Yet, the majority of my classmates cannot grasp these simple rules. Is it just me or do other people find the same thing? My current class is 3rd year level and at this point a professor should not be telling me it is refreshing to have a student (me) cite things correctly.
