Cyberbullying and poor netiquette are prevalent in higher education. In the k-12 arena, legislation has been written, bills have been passed, and policies are in place in many states. Instead of focusing on k-12, the researchers chose an online business school to evaluate if faculty had an adequate understanding of cyberbullying, netiquette, and understanding of the similarities and differences between the two. In addition, they reviewed the information available to this faculty body regarding the policies and procedures that were in place on cyberbullying. Based on the study that was conducted and the review of policies, the researchers created a list of best practices for implementing procedures and conducting training on cyberbullying and netiquette. This information can be used a reference for other online higher education institutions.
