In order to facilitate the ability of a faculty member to make available, if needed, an archived recording to be shared ONLY with students enrolled in the class and their supporting personnel, we recommend the following statements be included in the course syllabus. Please note, the preparation of recordings does not suggest that students may be exempted from class attendance without a process that includes the normal dialogue/consultation with the faculty member and compliance with the College’s attendance policy.
In the event a faculty member records a sensitive class conversation that students would prefer not be archived, it is possible to edit the video to remove a portion of the recording prior to posting (if posting is warranted).
When faculty make a class recording available via Zoom, they should use the cloud recording option and take steps to secure the recording. If students appear and are personally identifiable in a class meeting recording, faculty must password-protect the video. (Directions are available online). If the meeting is a virtual class session, faculty should post the link to the recording only within Sakai, and nowhere else. Finally, faculty members should delete recordings of virtual meetings or classes when they no longer have need of them.
