Feedback: Finding a balance is key to being “present” in your class. It is not necessary, not to mention extremely time consuming, to respond to all posts in the discussion board. The best approach is to make your participation valuable and intentional. Find discussion posts that intrigue you and engage interesting dialog with your classmates. Additionally, be sure to keep up with the course announcements. This is the best way to stay up to date with what is happening in the course and any changes along the way.
Feedback: Your classroom is a professional environment, so you need to respond in a way that you are comfortable and that makes the others in the class as comfortable as possible.

For this reason replying back to the individual may not be the best response because you could be making an assumption of their tone. Is is best to reach out to your instructor for advice in the matter.
Feedback: If you’re not sure you’ve used your research properly, it’s always a good idea to ask for help. The Writing Center, your instructor, or the library can help! Avoid submitting your assignments if you are unsure whether you have plagiarized.
