How our Community Helps Keep My Big Campus Safe
We want My Big Campus to be a safe place for students to socialize in an appropriately educational context. As such, we use various methods to intercept certain types of content that may be unsuitable for a K-12 environment.
Occasionally, however, inappropriate content can slip past our automatic and manual reviews. That's where our community can help.
If you see a wall post, comment, discussion or library item that you feel should be reported to your school administrators and My Big Campus staff, click the Report Abuse button.
Here are some of the things administrators and staff want to know about:
- Profanity (swearing or cussing)
- Drinking or drug abuse
- Talk of suicide or self harm
- Gang activity
- Criminal behavior
- Inappropriate socializing between adults and students, or between older students and younger students
- Unsafe situations (abuse or neglect)
- Broken links or missing videos in the Resource Library
- Anything else you see that administrators and staff should know about
Using the Report Abuse button is not the same as tattling or snitching. When a person "acts out," it's often because they just need an adult to help them understand how to behave safely and appropriately on line. Other times, a person might appear to be in danger of being hurt, or hurting themselves, and needs someone to make sure unsafe situations are investigated and resolved. Finally, it can be a quick way to let MBC staff know there is a technical problem.
There are only a few cases where it is not appropriate to use the Report Abuse button:
- As a prank or practical joke
- When you are trying to reply to a post. Use the Comment button instead.
On My Big Campus, good citizenship means being accountable for your actions. Use the Report Abuse button responsibly: if something seems wrong, let us know.
