Learn how to safely integrate Web 2.0 into the classroom

Apps & Web 2.0: Legal Issues in Using the Internet in Class

The growing use of Web 2.0 and social media in the classroom is generally seen as a good thing. It encourages collaboration, free exchange of ideas, and, in many cases, a richer learning experience. But there’s a flip side, too, and it manifests itself in concerns about privacy, safety and civility.

Concerns about privacy and personal safety are legitimate ones, and if they’re ignored, they can make students vulnerable – and institutions liable.

Learn about critical legal and other issues from a veteran online educator and attorney. In Apps & Web 2.0: Legal Issues in Using the Internet in Class, Stephanie Delaney, J.D., Ph.D., director of eLearning for Cascade Community College, explains the risks posed to students in the online space, the best practices you can use to manage them, and the potential liability if you don’t.
