Public Writing and Student Privacy

This course requires students to post their writing on the public web in the form of blog posts on their individual blogs. Although all student web posts are publicly viewable and searchable, all grades are private and accessible only by the individual student through Moodle, in accordance with the federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). If a student desires additional privacy on the public web, s/he may publish posts for this course using only a first name, or initials, or a pseudonym and web address that masks their public identity.
