Abstract :

Online communication tools like email, chat and discussion forums provide powerful platforms to enrich discussions among students and teachers to implement collaborative assignments, foster peer review, and encourage greater communication between students and instructors. Online chat allows for communication between students and teacher at a moment's notice. Chat rooms provide an environment that replicates a classroom for both socialization and learning purposes. Similarly, post responses to assignments on bulletin boards or to debate class topics on discussion boards fosters writing skills. Today email is being used more than any other form of communication. So knowing how to communicate correctly through online communication tools like email, chat and discussion forums are more important for teachers.
