Community Guidelines

The MyOnlineSchool Community is a meeting-point for members to ask questions and exchange advice and tips with each other. Here, you’ll find many features such as Question and Answer communities for specific niche topics, and even our virtual cafes where you can simply chat and get to know each other. All of our communities are built with you in mind so you can learn from your fellow members who share your interests and passions. Be aware that this is a peer-to-peer support Community; MyOnlineSchool does not provide direct customer support to you via these boards. If you want to learn more on a subject, we advise that you take a MyOnlineSchool course, where you get personal feedback in our classrooms from real experts.

If you are new to the MyOnlineSchool Community, taking a look at our community guidelines, such as the Discussion Boards Usage Policy and the Community Content Policy, is a great way to start. Knowing what is and is not allowed will be very helpful as you connect with other MyOnlineSchool Community members.

Most importantly though - enjoy taking part in your Community and we're glad you're here!

Thank you,
Amy
MyOnlineSchool Community Manager
