Ethics Module for Designers/Developers - Case #3

Read through the following scenario and respond to the questions in the discussion thread.

Rod Vaughn is the team lead and key instructional design developer for a major university. The university’s educational technology director wants him and/or members of his team to explain how to use a new piece of software. This software would analyze the content of the past three years worth of student e-mails of which the director has copies.

Should Rod explain the software to the director?

Has the director violated any ethical code?

Does Rod have any ethical obligations in this situation?
Would Rod have the appropriate integrity if he complied?
