In this module we focus our attention on legal issues and government legislation that have an impact on the online classroom. These issues include:
- Copyright and Fair Use guidelines
- The protection of student information outlined in the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
- US Federal Section 508 guidelines for student accessibility
Each topic is considerable enough to comprise a course in its own right; however, we will do our best to provide a brief overview of each, and point you in the direction of resources that can help answer any further questions.
