MSU expects that you will respect the rights of faculty and other students as you participate in the educational process. Participating in an Desire2Learn course means that you may have access to personal information and academic work produced by other students and faculty members, such as discussion board postings, drafts of papers and other work produced in the course. Academic norms and MSU policy require that you must not reveal any information about classmates, course work content, or its authors to anyone outside the course.
Students should be aware that their use of Desire2Learn materials and communication tools in a particular course may be observed and recorded by the instructor of that course. These observations and records may include a student's access to online library materials linked through the Desire2Learn course website. Use of these observations and records must conform to the use and release of confidential student records as described in Michigan State University's Access to Student Information . Students may link to library resources directly, without linking through Desire2Learn, using the Library website.
