Greetings!  I am knew to this group and somewhat new to Web 2.0 applications although I do teach online.  I am a composition/literature/journalism teacher at two community colleges.  I am wanting to set up either blogs or Facebook pages for my classes so that I may post assignments, extra information, and so forth.  How do I make sure everything is secure so as not to run into trouble with FERPA?

Do the colleges you teach at have Blackboard?  Many schools have some type of platform that offers the security you want.  I would check into what the school has available. 

One college utilizes Moodle and the other uses Angel, but I don't want anything so complex set up for the classes as I won't be having them turn in assignments or anything.  If I utilize a regular blog such as WordPress or something and I am just doing one way postings--assignments and extra information or youtubes and so on...there shouldn't be any issue with FERPA should there?  Thank you for your reply!
