The Internet provides online learners with a great opportunity to earn a degree, connect with others, and share information. Whether enrolled in online K-12 or higher education courses, you should take advantage of the Internet as powerful tool to help you reach your goals. You should also take responsibility in knowing how to safely navigate the Internet to protect yourself, your family, and your information.
We recommend using the simple guidelines for Internet Safety for Online Learning by iSEEK to protect yourself online. In addition, the USAA Educational Foundation offers a comprehensive online Internet Safety for Adults publication with topics including passwords, safeguarding your privacy, social networking and more.
