Website: globalcultureexchange.org Username: your student number Password: culture Purpose The purpose of the Global Culture Exchange (GCE) is to facilitate online communication and cultural understanding among foreign students. In doing so, we shall be provided with a discussion forum to authentically practice our English communicative skills, explore similarities/differences that we share, and subsequently develop a greater appreciation for foreign cultures, as well as our own. Throughout the semester, your instructor will provide you with approximately two to three conversational topics. Your task is to create an original written posting on each topic in a respectful and timely fashion, and then discuss it (or other students‘ postings) through a series of replies in our discussion forum. Any postings submitted in the last three days of the course will not be evaluated; please remember that participation/postings should be done consistently throughout the course. Original posting: You will be responsible for providing an original posting on a topic specified by your instructor. Your original posting should be well-written, interesting, relevant, insightful, and add to the discourse of our class objectives. The posting should meet a minimum 300-word count, and include any images that add context to the topic (please ensure that any images attached/embedded do not exceed 600 pixels wide or 500 pixels high). Each original posting will be worth approximately 5%. Reply postings: After you have submitted an original posting, please read your foreign classmates’ original postings. You will be responsible for providing at least 2-3 reply postings per week, with each reply being a minimum of 50 words. Each reply will be worth approximately 2%. Minimum original posting/reply: Week 1 - personal profile posting (300+ words) and 2 reply postings (50+ words each) Week 2 - three reply postings (50+ words each) Week 3 - one original posting (300+ words) and 2 reply postings (50+ words each) Week 4 - three reply postings (50+ words each) Week 5 - one original posting (300+ words) and 2 reply postings (50+ words each) Week 6 - three reply postings (50+ words each)
