Abstract

In our changing educational system with increased emphasis on online classes, students need to feel as comfortable and safe in those environments as they do in on campus classes. Our institutions may have policies to protect on campus students from harassing and threatening behavior, but what about in the online environment? How can we take existing policies and modify them to include provisions for the online environment? Two colleagues recount a "cyberbullying" experience from the Fall of '04 with suggestions for preventing and prohibiting such behavior before it affects the members of the online community.
