E-mail sent through myANC arrives to your instructor from myANC.edu. You'd probably agree that's not helpful in identifying who sent the message and what it's about.
When e-mailing through myANC, please follow these rules:
- Create a subject line that describes in 5-7 words the e-mail's topic.
- Please sign your first and last name at the end of the message.
- Please type the course you are in after your name.
- Use proper grammar and punctuation. Save the all lower case, no punctuation, emoticons, and abbreviations for your texting to others.
Here's an example of a sample email that does not provide much information to your instructor:
Subject: Having trouble with my assignment
Message: I can't get the assignment to send. It won't let me.
Improved version that gives the instructor enough information to provide you guidance:
Subject: Having trouble with the Week 1 Paragraph assignment
I typed up my Week 1 Paragraph assignment in Word and saved the file to my jump drive. When I went back to the assignment to send the file to you, I can't find the upload link to attach it to the assignment. I saw it earlier. Do you think it's because I am past the due date?
I appreciate any help you can give me.
