While adults often understand the hurt that is typically caused by physical bullying, many of them either underestimate or do not realize the far-reaching and potentially devastating impact that cyberbullying can have on a victim. Because cyberbullying occurs online, often under the guise of anonymity, it can be especially vicious and intimidating. And, because it can be "witnessed" by scores of online spectators and perpetrated 24/7, the impact is far-reaching and victims often feel they have nowhere to hide. In part 1 of this 2-part series, join Brent Maguire as he provides an overview of what cyberbullying is and how it occurs. He will discuss the various forms of cyberbullying and how it differs from "traditional" bullying. He will also explore the impact of cyberbullying and some of the challenges it presents.

Very useful information. Thanks
UPDATE: After waiting for 40 minutes and logging back in, my certificate of completion was generated.
Great information. However, I watched it twice, left a very thought provoking comment, and was not allowed to print a certificate of completion. Maddening.
