Recently, I created two new FERPA training resources.
I created a 1-page visual summary of FERPA, which I call the FERPA Whiteboard. The idea was to summarize HIPAA in a concise and visually-engaging way. You can download a PDF handout version here. We’ve been licensing it to many organizations for training and awareness purposes.
FERPA Interactive Whiteboard
I subsequently created a new training module — an interactive version of the FERPA Whiteboard — the FERPA Interactive Whiteboard. When people click on each topic, the program provides brief narrated background information, presented in a very understandable and memorable way. Trainees can learn at their own pace. This program is designed to be very short — it is about 5 minutes long.
It can readily be used on internal websites to raise awareness and teach basic information about FERPA. It can also be used in learning management systems.

I’ve been a teacher for the past 15 years, and I’ve taught in several mediums including live classes and computer-based e-learning. I have come to the conclusion that the most effective factor in education and training is fostering emotional investment.
Simply put, students must care about learning the material. The more they care, the more they learn.
The notion of getting emotional investment from students might sound like simple common sense, but it is often not done …and often not even attempted.
