Abstract

Digitally mediated communications offer ease and flexibility to exchange information across a networked global community. All interactions could potentially be captured however, using different invasive technologies for spoofing, phishing, data mining, profiling, and tracking an individual’s digital fingerprints and footprints. Ultimately, the exposure of private information not only compromises an individual’s identity, security, and privacy, but also the security of organizations and governments. Nonetheless, these same technologies present unique opportunities for cyber educators to track and monitor, within e-learning platforms, the activities of students with the goal of using this data to improve the learning experience for the benefit of all learners.
