This paper presents theory and research leading to development of a graduate course in cyberethics education. Theory on the psychology of the Internet and moral development are applied to digital life in cyberspace. Research finding that subject’s online identities do not stray far from their identities in the physical world combines with theory to form the psychological premises of a graduate level course on cyberethics. Two topics in the course, privacy and identity are discussed for their value in teaching and learning ethical behavior in cyberspace. Findings include a teacher’s report of how completing the course helped to teach cyberethics.
