A new interactive education programme has been launched by an anti-online bullying organisation.
The initiative, from the non-profit Cybersmile Foundation, is intended to help teach internet users about all aspects of life online.
Twelve modules have been introduced: positive gaming, parental guidance, LGBT awareness, livestream basics, digital civility, gender awareness, technology and wellbeing, content authenticity, online safety, online security, using emojis and emoticons, and beauty cyberbullying.

“In addition to educating large numbers of internet users around the world, we can also work with brands and stakeholders to create bespoke, co-branded educational modules which resonate with their core audiences as well as the wider public,” said Iain Alexander, the foundation’s head of engagement.
“We can even work together with brands on joint research to ensure that modules deliver the most current information and solutions possible.”
The regularly updated programme content will offer brands the chance to support existing modules, or partner Cybersmile in developing others “which are perfectly aligned with their CSR objectives and brand purpose”. Internal and staff training opportunities for companies of all sizes are also available.
