Discussion for Netiquette Quiz
Laurie Tenzer (Faculty)
The material covered is good, but dated. It seems to be a promotion for a textbook on netiquette.
It takes Java a very long time to load. It could use a loading icon. Also, knowing how many questions there are would help the learner to know how much longer the quiz will be. The design of the site seems to be very outdated technology-wise.

The site has good information about email ettiquette but seems to be a bit dated. The newest copyright on the site is 2011 but many of the pages list a much older date. After some digging I was able to find some references to social networking but the resource primarily focuses on email. I would encourage the author to redesign the site to address current technology.
The Nettiquette quiz requires java to run which will limit its use on mobile devices. In Google Chrome on Mac, the quiz was cut off on one side and difficult to read.

This is a good start at Netiquette; however, I can see professors modfying the questions to be more specifice to their course adn their course communication.
I missed a few questions because I didn't realize a new question appeared. A next and back button would help in the usage in case someone wanted to review the choices again.

response. Then I went back and tried each answer, reading the corresponding
feedback that follows the answer, whether right or wrong. Since I needed a
non-threatening, non-punitive way to teach netiquette to a group of college
freshmen who would be actively involved in email communication with their peers,
I tried the quiz with a group of twenty students.
I found that the students were surprised at some of the responses to their
answers, which indicated they really needed the awareness the quiz gave them.
They weren't as threatened by the "computer's" answer and took it well when they
missed something. I didn't have to be the "bad guy" or "heavy" while exposing
some of them to things they were unaware of.
