A Course in Online Civility - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education
An odd one, where online discussions actually occur and with some politeness. The value points are in Goedde's connection of discourse form - rant, off-hand comment - with lack of development. "Students disagree with each other, sometimes strongly, but they also take pains to be polite.

Their motivation is clear: Their grade depends on it. In my online classes, every assignment, big and small, is written. If the writing is sloppy or dogmatic, it doesn't earn a high grade. For example, students routinely give feedback on one another's drafts. If a student responds with a rant, either in support or opposition, it typically means the ideas are not organized, so I take off points. If a student's comments are offhanded, it typically means that the ideas are underdeveloped, or that claims are made without evidence to support them, and the grade reflects this shortcoming."
