Your rights and responsibilities are covered by a number of official policies, as well as by standards agreed between you and your teachers.

Your Rights and Responsibilities
Your Rights and Responsibilities are outlined by TAFE NSW policies and apply to online learning in the same way as to any other learning environment at TAFE Illawarra.
Student Rights and Responsibilities - TAFE NSW
The TAFE Illawarra
explains your responsibilities in more detail.
Most important to remember is:
Respect for others: use appropriate language and tone; be constructive and positive, support the efforts of others.
Respect for online spaces and facilities: use appropriate edits, upload only appropriate images and files, and take care not to delete or damage student or staff material on the site.
It is also the responsibility of all staff and students to comply with an Acceptable Usage Policy when using internet and email.

Copyright & Plagiarism
The internet is public and open to all to view. However, this does not mean that you can use other people's material as your own or without proper reference to the creator or owner of the material. Using other people's work without acknowledgement may infringe their copyright. Australia has a variety of copyright laws related to digital material. For more information on Digital Copyright go to the Smartcopying Website.
Smartcopying Website - TAFE
NOTE: The copyright of any original work created by you as a student is owned by you.
Using other people's work without acknowledgement may also be considered
. This is essentially copying someone else's work and claiming it as your own, including copying text and/or images directly from the internet. Copying is a serious issue because you are attempting to demonstrate your own competency using someone else's skills. This is not only unacceptable but is detrimental to your own learning and competency.
Use the Internet Safely
The Internet provides opportunities to connect with people and sites all over the world. Many can be trusted but some are not trustworthy, some are incorrect and some may have a high risk. Check out the Australian Government site on Online Safety.
Dept of Broadband, Communication & The Digital Economy - Online Safety Information
To keep safe in an online environment you must take responsibility for your personal information and privacy - do not make personal information public. Also be critical and evaluate sites and information you find - don't accept what you find on the internet as correct or true without questioning and checking the source (good sites will have contact information and a 'last updated' date at the bottom of the page).
Your own computer could suffer file loss or damage by malicious software (viruses, spyware, etc) when using the Internet. Ensure that you have up-to-date security software installed.
