Distance Education Handbook
Best practices in Distance Education dictate that you should send your students a welcome letter prior to the first day of classes. Your welcome letter should provide multiple resources that help students successfully begin your course. Since this will be your first contact with students, make sure to write in a friendly, welcoming manner.
You should also post this letter in your course for students who add the class after the letter has been emailed out.
