Parents may have some questions about the online safety of their child.  We hope the following information will be useful.

Publishing and sharing content on the World Wide Web can have great benefits, but it’s always good to be able to control just who gets to see what.  Along with the easy creation of content in Ultranet, setting security levels and permission access is also offered at various levels throughout the application.  

In Ultranet, teachers have the ability to customise which pages are available for public access, or allow only certain classes or groups to access a resource. 

With special permission settings on certain modules, teachers can take fine control of objects in the page, allowing students to have particular edit rights.  Moderators can also be set up to check content such as discussion posts, so that inappropriate comments can be flagged before going live.

This is an exciting new development that will have huge benefits to students and teachers.  If you have any questions or require further explanation please contact the school or visit the Ultranet website at www.ultranet.net.nz.
