Attitudes - ethics in an online course

Summary

Ethics aims to investigate and justify good and evil standards that show people how they should act (Velasquez, Andre, Shanks and Meyer, 2010). Standards are determined by people. They are neither permanent nor eternal - they are changing depending on reality and context. Standards affect people's attitudes and vice versa - attitudes affect standards. On the other hand, attitudes are also shaped in relation to law and justice, social consent, and are dependent on certain virtues and rights such as, among others: compassion, honesty, loyalty, the right to privacy, the right to security. Shaping attitudes in the context of teaching in an online course is an issue raised by authors who, based on a mini survey, have presented a sketch of students' ethical preferences in virtual reality with reference to the examples of behavior presented in the questionnaire. The survey was conducted among a group of 77 respondents at one of the faculties at the University of Environmental and Life Sciences in Wroclaw.
