Title IX was inacted to protect students, employees, or anyone from being discriminated against based on gender identity. As an online instructor, we may not be aware of a student's sexual or gender identity but would still follow the law.
We are an online environment so all the safety measures are not relevant to us. Our students are from all over the U.S. so we will not be able to monitor the student's environment. We have a duty to notify someone if we believe a student is a threat to anyone else or to themselves.
