There are an increasing number of classes being offered via the World Wide Web. Although much of the information that we review regarding on-line learning seems positive, difficulties can arise. In particular, the anonymity that a web course can provide can be a blessing and a curse. In this article, the author suggests developing an on-line ethics policy detailing proper and improper conduct for the course. The author details prescriptions for the design and development of such a policy and how to manage potential problems before they begin.
