Abstract:     
The title describes the intersection of two disciplines: “Educational Technology” and “Information Technology Law”. “Educational Technology” is the ethical practice and study of facilitating learning and improving performance through the creation, use, and management of technological processes. “Technology Law”, also known as “IT Law”, “Computer Law”, “Cyberlaw” and “Internet Law” is the study of wrongful acts over the Internet. This presentation will report on five legal issues critical to teaching online:

1) Actus Reus and User-Generated Content
2) Duty of Care or Good Neighbour Liability Trap?
3) Free Expression or Online Libel?
4) Privacy vs. Online Surveillance
5) Free Culture vs. Intellectual Property Law
