This presentation explored the pros and cons of anonymity in cyber education.  It evaluated both sides of the issue and presents them in a way that will help cyber educators and instructional designers understand the social, cultural and educational implications of anonymity.  The PATRIOT Act and other initiatives impacting anonymity were discussed, including the far-reaching effects of anonymity within online educational settings and group dynamics.  It also further compared and contrasted anonymity’s potential for limiting and monitoring academic freedom to the social benefits it brings, while discussing the social identity model of deindividuation.
