Pre Recorded | Best Sellers

  • 60 minutes

"Computer systems at schools, colleges and universities have become favored targets because they hold many of the same records as banks but are much easier to access."

Cyber education is an emerging field with enormous potentials and challenges for higher education. Cyber education can be considered as a new and highly flexible component in a rapidly changing multi-model education system. Success or failure of cyber education depends on the best practices and their proper implementation, with the potential to make cyber education as effective as, or more effective than, onsite education.

This program will include a review of possible legal issues that can arise from this new and ever increasingly used form of education. You'll understand and learn how the IDEA and Section 504 apply to the world of cyber education. There will be a detailed discussion of how cyber programs ensure  they comply with FERPA and other legal implications for the operation of a cyber program.

The webinar will focus on:

  • From a legal perspective, when is cyber education appropriate for a student?

  • How can and should cyber programs handle special education needs? 

  • What should cyber programs do to comply with FERPA and other security concerns?

  • What liability is there of technical equipment failures and what should be done to address the same?

  • What are the possible PPRA concerns that arise from cyber programs?

Who should attend this webinar:

  • Directors of Special Education

  • Directors of Student Services

  • Special Education Case Managers/Teachers

  • School Psychologists

  • Regular Education Teachers

  • Deans of Students and Faculty

  • Directors of Technology

  • Administrators and Teachers in cyber programs
