FERPA Fear? Is Your Use of Social Media FERPA Compliant? (EDUCAUSE Review)

FERPA Fear? Is Your Use of Social Media FERPA Compliant? (EDUCAUSE Review) | ventures of e-learning instruction | Scoop.it
Perry D. Drake is assistant professor and academic director, Social and Digital Media Marketing, University of Missouri–St. Louis.

It is hard to imagine holding a university-level class today in which students do not engage with the web or social media in one form or another, whether by using Google search, bookmarking or sharing an article, taking an online survey, posting or commenting on a blog, or using e-mail or text messaging. So, what rules should we, as instructors, follow to ensure no legal or Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) issues arise?

Lynda.com Online Training part of the package for UW-Stout Online Students | ventures of e-learning instruction | Scoop.it

Lynda.com is a constantly growing library of more than 2,000 self-paced online courses. This diverse catalog includes software training, programming lessons and even “concept” tutorials on topics such as design and photography.

 

Since Lynda.com is now integrated with your UW-Stout account, it can recognize you, maintain a learning transcript and make certificates available for your professional purposes.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, August 26, 2014 11:02 AM

Online students (and teachers) go to school 'in a computer'. Gaining technology skills is part of the double loop effect of online classes. You learn the curriculum and you begin to master the communications technology that allows you to be present with your students.


We don't expect the graduate students in the E-Learning and Online Teaching Graduate Certificate to be technical wizards. We do encourage independent learning and the confident attitude that "I can learn this."  


One service we provide to students is 24/7 access to the superb video based online self-paced courses provided by Lynda.com.  This is available to all UW-Stout students currently registered for a class.


Our online classes begin mid September. Now is a good time to brush up on your software skills!

Facilitating Creative Online Forums and Discussion Boards in Online Learning by Linda Silva

Facilitating Creative Online Forums and Discussion Boards in Online Learning by Linda Silva | ventures of e-learning instruction | Scoop.it

Too often, instructors get caught up in seeing forums as a quantitative measure of how much a student has learned, gauging understanding by replying with prompts that are, frankly, as boring or as tedious as some of the material students have been asked to read. 

 

These conversations between students have more depth and more personality because they are creating, building, having fun and interacting. They are not just replying to a prompt. They are using their imaginations. The process brings an energy and passion that engages them.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, September 20, 2014 5:08 PM

Linda Silva writes, "One of the best ways to get students more involved is by offering prompts that enable students to use their own previous education— and prod them to use their imagination."


I've used a version of this idea in my professional development classes for years. I always encourage 'teaching stories". This is a way to help teachers see the connections between the course content and their own teaching environments. It also encourages story telling which is a very powerful way to synthesize ideas, not to mention very interesting to read (listen) to.
