Best practices in online courses suggest using emoticons to help express what body language and facial expressions do in face-to-face courses. Emoticons are especially useful in providing students with critiques to assist in conveying what students could easily misinterpret as negative criticism rather than a sincere critique. It would be beneficial to be able to include emoticons in the feedback area of the gradebook.
