There is a certain amount of anonymity associated with electronic communication, and this anonymity may cause people to reveal more information about themselves than they would in person. However, I would suggest that all students be careful about how much private information they divulge to others.

You are responsible for determining how much and what kind of information about yourself you wish to reveal to other members of the class, and neither John A. Logan College nor the instructor can assume responsibility for any consequences resulting from students divulging private information to other students. I don't mean to scare anyone with these comments. I assume that all students will behave appropriately and that no problems will arise. Just be careful about opening up your private life too much…

Students should not expect their classmates to reveal private information about themselves. If you feel that someone else in the class is trying to get this kind of information by pressure or deceit, make sure to contact your instructor immediately.
