As a result, the shy student left behind the course. throughout the article, Schuman clearly explains as a mentor to the reticent students and the outspoken students how to plan for course, take part in the lesson and boost grades. For example, Schuman wrote, "The wide-eyed earnestness of a timid but studious young person can melt a professor's overworked little heart." She encourages the shy students to keep touch with the professor and ask a substantive question before or after class, visit office hours and E-mail. In addition, she said, "While you are doing the reading, you will likely find that two or three questions come to your mind.
Email cannot replace paper work or face to face communication because if there is any information that is confidential than paper work is better option. With latest technology of smartphones email consumes time and work. In my opinion I believe that professors should make students follow certain format because the emails sent by the students are very casual and informal which becomes impolite and rude which is not accepted by the professors and annoys them. Professors should implement pedagogical intervention regarding the emails sent by students but notall students send informal students there are students who know the right format and etiquette to mail a professor. The article about students writing emails to faculty about e-politeness it says that email sometimes becomes a bad etiquette of English by students and the informal language they use but on the other side it says that emails technology also allows in communicating between professors and students that may improve the politeness and have realistic experience.
The professor forced us to share our introduction paragraph aloud to the class. Since I barely knew the professor or the students, I did not find the participating a whole lot of fun.

Group workshops were then assigned between two individuals, your partner would read your essay and would give positive or negative feedback, to help me figure out my mistakes and improve on those points in my revision process.

These types of interactions humanize the educational experience in a way that online learning does not. People are comfortable with a traditional classroom structure and sometimes don’t want to deviate from it. If we have a question for our teacher we can raise our hand in class and get an immediate answer. If we turn in a paper and have a question about grades or comments, we can usually talk to the teacher and analyze body language. In online learning, it is sometimes harder to gauge effective communication and we may have to wait until our teacher reads their email.
The obvious use of plagiarism in college students’ assignments has become a major problem in today’s education system. Due to this, instructors are trying to find ways to teach their students about the ethics involved in writing so that they will stop plagiarizing. However, in order to do this, instructors must first understand how students view plagiarism and understand the best ways to put an end to student plagiarism. In “Winning Hearts and Minds in War on Plagiarism,” Scott Jaschik effectively persuades his audience of college level English instructors to prevent students from plagiarizing by using rhetorical choices such as irony, an appeal to authority, and jargon. One rhetorical choice that Jaschik uses in order to enhance his purpose by shining a light into the minds of students is irony.
The department made what Wyatt termed a consensus decision on the issue after discussing problems professors were seeing as students cited incorrect information from Wikipedia in papers and on tests. In one instance, Wyatt said, a professor noticed several students offering the same incorrect information, from Wikipedia. There was some discussion in the department of trying to ban students from using Wikipedia, but Wyatt said that didn’t seem appropriate. Many Wikipedia entries have good bibliographies, Wyatt said. And any absolute ban would just be ignored.

After students send an email, they have to wait to get response until instructor reply to them back. If students don’t understand what instructor say on the response email, they have to send to ask and wait again. Since they can’t communicate right away, students cannot understand school’s materials. However, the traditional class gives students more opportunity to improve the learning skills. Students who take a traditional class meet instructor face to face.

Conclusion After the comparison and searching I did , I think that turnitin.com is more suitable for our University, the features of the online grading and grade book makes the grading process easy for lecturers and allows them to focus more on teaching rather than just grading.
