Security risks and protection in online learning: A survey

Yong Chen, Wu He, Web Courseworks, Dec 13, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Interesting results from a fairly extensive literature and blog articles survey: "while scholars have identified diverse security risks and have proposed solutions to mitigate the security threats in online learning, bloggers have not discussed security in online learning with great frequency. The differences shown in the survey results generated by the two different methods confirm that online learning providers and practitioners have not considered security as a top priority." Note especially (in the 'reserach trends' section) the discussion regarding Personal Learning Environments (PLEs) and security. "A one-stop solution that is not dependent on a series of characters but on a technology, which is unique and can only be possessed by a specific individual, is needed for PLE."
