About the Competition
Trust, privacy, and safety are critical to learning in an open online world. How can learners exercise control over who sees and uses their data? What tools do they need to navigate, collaborate, and learn online with confidence? What solutions will foster greater civility and respect in online learning environments? How can open technical standards create more opportunities to share and collaborate online in a spirit of trust?
The Trust Challenge will award $1.2 million to institutions and organizations that tackle these questions in real-life learning contexts. More information about the Competition including rules, guidelines, and how to enter can be found on the Competition website.
