The rapid online expansion of the Internet means students and teaching academics in higher education are increasingly engaging with synchronous and asynchronous digital learning environments. Correlating with this increase in engagement is the rise of ethical challenges and mental wellbeing difficulties associated with digital safety, digital reputation and digital citizenship. Engaging students and staff in higher education with creating and leading safe spaces online has received minimal attention in the literature, in university policies and student engagement documents. It is this dearth of literature and policy direction that has driven the development of our innovative research project, a student informed website promoting positive digital presence, digital health and wellness. http.//
