OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Oklahoma State University has implemented a new online course for students to teach them how to prevent sexual assault.

The course comes months after the federal government announced the school was one of 55 colleges and universities across the country facing a Title IX investigation over their handling of sexual abuse complaints.

Lee Bird, vice president for Student Affairs at OSU, said the course takes about 45 minutes to complete.

Bird says the free training teaches students about gender discrimination and sexual harassment and informs students about how and what to report and where to go for help.

Every OSU student must complete the training before enrolling for the spring 2015 term.
