Individual Online Participant Code of Conduct

Participating in our online events will be very different from any previous experiences you may have had with classroom learning. This Code of Conduct is used to ensure that all participants can benefit from the learning and enjoy this new experience. All learners on our courses must follow this Code of Conduct to maintain a positive learning environment for all. We may withdraw course access if you violate this code.

  • Tolerate and respect individual differences.
  • Behave in a friendly, cooperative, polite and responsible manner towards everyone.
  • Attend all sessions.
  • Follow all of the following General Rules for Student Conduct in Online Activity.

General Rules for Learner Conduct in Online Activity

  • Participation in the event always requires responsible behaviour from you together with respect towards other participants and members of staff. Global Knowledge / Skillsoft treats all forms of abuse, bullying, intimidation, sexist and racist behaviour very seriously. You must not engage in any anti-social behaviour or abuse of any kind towards other learners or staff.

  • Do not give out any personal information online, such as phone number, home or email address.
  • Please be aware of your surroundings, particularly if your online activity enables you to share your video or microphone. Ensure that your back-drop is appropriate for a classroom setting, and if there are any unexpected noises etc. (including noisy family members!) please mute your microphone or stop the video as needed, until you are safely able to re-activate.
  • Please do not take photographs of your screens or share any images of the online session, this is for your safety as well as the safety of other learners and staff.
  • Children should not be visible onscreen at any time during a class. If a child is visible, staff may have to remove you from the class.
  • Do not attend live classes while driving a car or doing any other activity where your safety is compromised by not paying 100% attention.
  • Please contact a member of staff immediately if you become aware of anything upsetting or inappropriate.
  • If your behaviour is inappropriate in any way, staff will immediately mute microphone/stop video/stop chat access as needed and warn you that if the behaviour continues, you will be removed from the session. Or, if the behaviour is serious enough you will be immediately removed from the session, and your place on any future sessions may be withdrawn.
  • Participants must comply with staff requests.
