Additional Resources

As schools and colleges move courses online, it is important to keep in mind the unique compliance framework that exists for distance education. “Keep Complying” offers academic leaders a brief introduction to this framework and links to guidance on a number of key compliance subjects (e.g., regular and substantive interaction, accessibility, and student data privacy) that can be shared with online instructors.
