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

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

Legal Advice For Online Teaching

The growing use of social/shared media and online apps 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 thereís a flip side to shared online learning experiences, and it manifests itself in concerns about privacy, safety and civility.

These are manageable concerns. But if your institution is not managing them, you leave your students vulnerable, and your institution itself liable.

Learn about critical legal and other issues in this Magna Online Seminar. We explain the risks posed to students in the online space, the best practices you can use to manage them, and the potential liability if you donít.
