Procedures for Protecting Student Privacy in Distance Education Courses

Mt. San Jacinto College is committed to protecting the privacy of students enrolled in all courses regardless of the mode of instruction (online, hybrid, f2f classroom, etc.). All of the District policies regarding student privacy and information security apply to distance education courses. Faculty teaching distance education courses are expected to uphold these policies by following these procedures:

  • Teach distance education courses using Canvas, the District’s learning management system, in order to ensure the security of student work and grades.
  • Use the District’s secure EagleAdvisor website to report student grades.
  • Faculty members and students must use the internal email functionality within Canvas or the District’s email system for all official, confidential communication such as providing feedback on student work, etc.
  • Faculty members should keep student work, scores or grades confidential. Students in the course should not have access to other students' work or grades.
  • Faculty members and students should keep their Canvas or District email account information secure.  Faculty members and students should not share their login information with anyone and they should not give anyone unauthorized access to their Canvas course(s).
  • All district employees should follow the District’s guidelines for sharing student educational record information with other faculty, staff, parents or others outside of the District.
