Schrameyer, Alexander R.; Graves, Tracy M.; Hua, David M.; Brandt, Nile C.
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v60 n6 p540-548 Nov 2016
The increasing use of online or cloud collaboration tools in organizations creates a need for students to develop skills in the use of these tools. Instructors have an opportunity to prepare students by incorporating these collaboration tools into their courses. The use of these online collaboration tools has the potential to expose instructors and educational institutions to potential violations of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). In this paper we will explore the benefits of collaboration, a variety of online collaboration tools, FERPA considerations when using such tools, and strategies for staying in compliance.
