Abstract Digital citizenship is drawing increasing attention in the ed-ucational system as a means to help students understand how to use technology in a safe and appropriate way. Cru-cial skills that students need in order to navigate the digital world effectively include: finding reliable information online, detecting suspicious content, being aware of the privacy poli-cies with information collected online, and taking advantage of what technology offers by participating in a responsible way with others worldwide. Following existing initiatives, this paper reports on our experience with a new Computer Science course on Digital Citizenship. We present the de-sign, objectives, and structure of the course. In describing the various course components, we highlight anecdotes from the first half of the semester demonstrating positive out-comes of the course delivery. Overall, this course is well-liked by the students and has received support from several fac-ulty members in promoting enrollment in their programs.
