Integrating social media into learning

Because of BC’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FIPPA) laws, Royal Roads students need to make a conscious choice to use social media as an appropriate tool in instructor-assigned learning activities.

On July 17, 2014, CTET is launching the Social Media Consent process, where each student will “opt in” or “opt out” of using social media tools to complete course work. This Social Media Consent form will appear when students enter the Moodle environment.

The purpose of this is to offer more support and transparency in the use of social media/third party/external tools in courses at Royal Roads (i.e. tools outside of Moodle – things such as YouTube, blogs, wikis, twitter, Flickr, PopcornMaker, etc).

For information for students and instructors, including screenshots, please see: http://computerservices.royalroads.ca/kb/social-media-consent
