Recording and Transcription of Class Content
View the University Policy Statement and Recording Lecture Notes & Transcription Agreement
Recording of class content includes, but is not exclusive to, audio recording, photography, video, scanning, screen capture, and the like.
Each instructor must permit class content to be recorded or transcribed by students when mandated to do so by the Americans with Disabilities Act or by other federal or state laws (Federal 504 Regs., The Federal Register, Vol. 42 No. 86 (5/4/77), page 2264, section 884.44, and Title II, The Americans with Disabilities Act, 8/90). Students who have disabilities, registered and documented with the Office of Disability Support Services, and who are prescribed an appropriate accommodation, are permitted to make recordings or have class content transcribed (which includes real time captioning / computer aided transcription). An instructor may request to see an accommodation letter from the Office of Disability Support Services and may also require that the student sign the University’s standard “Recording and Transcription Agreement ” form prior to allowing the recording. In all other cases, consent to record class content is at the sole and absolute discretion of the instructor.
Any recording of class content is for private use and study and shall not be made publicly accessible without the written consent of the instructor and students in the class. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure the destruction of the recording immediately after the course final.
