We encourage you to record lectures and class sessions in Zoom if it will assist with student learning or if it will provide greater access to students who may be in different time zones or who may have trouble with their technology. At the same time, we want to make you aware of things you can do to mitigate concerns around student privacy.
You must communicate this information using Canvas tools and at the beginning of each recording.
If you have students participating in the lecture (e.g. via Zoom), their names cannot be displayed to other classes without students’ express written consent (or for Spring 2020 only, electronically obtained via authentication). Alternatively, you may edit your recording to remove student information.
Yes, you may. If student interaction occurs during the recording, you must ensure that the recording can only be accessed by those students enrolled in the class.
OSU’s interpretation of FERPA sees students in combined sections of the same course and the same learning modality (e.g. on-campus/remote; Ecampus) as being enrolled in the same course. We advise you, if possible, to edit out student information.
Kaltura allows instructors to capture lectures and edit videos before posting. Please consult Academic Technology for assistance with Kaltura.
Academic Technology provides support for video platforms.
Research involving capturing audio/visual information requires review from the Human Research Protection Program. Please consult with Allyson Dean in the Office of the Registrar to determine what FERPA requirements might apply to your research.
You may contact Allyson Dean in the Office of the Registrar with FERPA questions.
