URMIA Journal 2013

Christina D. Riggs, an associate in the Higher Education Practice, wrote this article about the legal risks facing colleges and universities in connection with offering massive open online courses, or MOOCs.

The article explores issues such as what duties, if any, a school has to protect students if a MOOC participant makes a threat and whether the school has a responsibility to monitor speech and conduct that arises online in such courses.
