Colleges Watching Online Behavior?

It will be interesting to see how colleges and universities handle the idea of monitoring their students’ online actions. At the National Conference on Law and Higher Education, a panel debated whether colleges have an obligation to monitor what their students’ post online on their Facebook pages or on their Twitter accounts. While I have been telling my advisees, especially prospective teachers, to be careful in what they post on their Facebook pages, I have not gone as far as some faculty who suggest that prospective teachers should delete their accounts. If colleges decide to pursue online monitoring, it will be interesting to see how they will manage this, especially as college budgets become tighter.
