Recording Lectures

Important Notes

  • This section on recording lectures applies to any student who needs to record a class as an accommodation.
  • No student should be recording lectures in any way without first having recording lectures as an accepted accommodation.
  • Any and all information discussed in lecture is the property of the presenter. It is unacceptable to record any part of a lecture, tutorial, seminar, or lab without knowledge of the instructor (or TA).
  • Recorded lecture material may be used for your own learning purposes only. No recorded content can be shared with any other person (classmates, friends, any other person, uploaded to the Internet) at any time for any purpose, and specifically not without agreement by your instructor or TA.

Activating the Recording Lectures Accommodation

  • If you need to record lectures as an accommodation, you must first discuss the need for this accommodation with your SAS Program Coordinator.
  • There may be a variety of methods by which recording a lecture (and subsequently composing your own lecture notes) can be done. You may want to discuss options with your SAS Program Coordinator, or ask for a referral to the SAS Assistive Technologist to consider your alternatives.
  • If you have recording lectures as an accommodation, it is essential that you discuss this accommodation with every instructor for each of your classes at the beginning of the term, to ensure that any concerns relating to recording lectures can be addressed.
