Being mindful of their camera presence—appearance, facial expression, and where they are when they are on camera—are good reminders. Being engaged appropriately means using the chat for the purpose intended, not replying all, monitoring content and grammar of any and all written messages that are sent out, and staying on task while in an online environment are great tips you can offer.
