My students and I are concerned about data security. How are their data protected?
It is good that you consider this issue and we encourage teachers and students to make this a discussion point in their courses, especially if this your first encounter with e-learning. We can assure your privacy and personal information are securely protected on the TeachAboutUS platform.
This platform has been jointly developed under the expertise of LIVE e.V./eXplorarium, a non-profit e-learning specialist based in Berlin. It has been accredited and co-funded by the Berlin Senate of Education, Science, and Research and the European Social Fund.
