Instructors can add individuals who have taken the online FERPA and Confidentiality Training course in Blackboard as TAs to their course sites. All would-be TAs (and other course assistants) must complete FERPA Training.
FERPA training is available at http://is.oregonstate.edu/training/admin-systems-training/sis-training/ferpa.
NOTE: The learning management system "Canvas" will replace Blackboard in a phased migration beginning January 2015 and completing in January 2016. See http://blackboard-transition.oregonstate.edu/ for further information.
