With the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the world and also in Iran, most organs, especially higher education, were affected. This pandemic has made education systems one of the biggest challenges in the last fifty years. The word "Netiquette" comes from the two words "Net" meaning network and the Internet and "Etiketa" , which refers to a set of rules of behavior and social habits and (the right way to socialize with others). Be formed, and the term so-called refers to the set of rules and customs of user behavior in a network. In order to create a common ground, we need specific outcomes. Part of the importance of training and consultation of netiquette is related to the fact that due to the coronavirus pandemic, all training is now moving towards virtualization, so the lack or inadequacy having trainings and counseling and not being aware of the principles of etiquette can create many challenges. The issue becomes more sensitive and serious because the lack of knowledge of faculty members as well as students about the principles of etiquette, can lead to many disruptions in the educational system and consequently the teaching and learning process. Therefore, it is suggested that in the universities of medical sciences, a system for teaching and counseling the etiquette be designed for both components of the educational system, namely faculty members and students, to acquaint them with this important category from possible disorders in communication skills. For this purpose, while proposing to prioritize this training and consultations about netiquette, strategies and solutions for designing and implementing this system, which can be in forms such as web-based or in the form of applications.
