FERPA and Student Work
In an era of more emphasis on digital learning, FERPA may prove a stumbling block.
Georgia Tech University just took down all its Swikis, or online collaborative course discussions, after a student complained about his name appearing in one. Ironically, the school was a pioneer in its use going back to 1997.
Should college administrators interpret FERPA this way? Or is it another example of overreach?
