As e-learning increases in popularity and reach, more people are taking online courses and need to understand the relevant security issues. This book discusses typical threats to e-learning projects, introducing how they have been and should be addressed.

Discusses typical threats to e-learning projects and introduces how these issues have been and should be addressed. This knowledge is essential to conduct a security risk analysis effectively, because participants need to be aware of common threats, protection mechanisms and effort/cost issues

Based on the security risk analysis, appropriate preventive measures are thoroughly discussed


Security in E-Learning is organized in three parts. First, the author raises awareness that security is an important issue in the context of education. The second part of the book emphasizes that security is mainly an organizational and management issue. The third goal highlights improving security as an ongoing process. Security in E-Learning includes technical fundamentals (buzz words), examples and case studies covering each of these three topics.

Considering the enormous costs of creating and maintaining courses, it is surprising that security is not yet considered an important issue by professionals, professors and students. Traditional security research has been largely driven by military requirements to enforce secrecy in the realm of e-learning. In most cases, the knowledge contained in e-learning programs is widely available. Therefore, the asset is not the information itself, but the hypermedia presentation used to convey the information.

Security in E-Learning is designed for a professional audience composed of researchers and practitioners in industry and IT professionals. This volume is also suitable for upper undergraduate-level and graduate-level students in computer science.
