Record and share your class meetings with future students or people outside of the course

If you want to record and share your class meetings, keep in mind that any class meeting recording that shows student identities is FERPA-protected course content and should not be shared outside of the class where it was recorded. This means that sharing it in the password-protected online course for the students in that course or section is allowed, but sharing the same recording in other sections or in future semesters would be inappropriate.

If you want to create videos that can be used in multiple courses or even shared publicly, you can pre-record those videos and then make them available to your students to watch during class time. You can use Zoom or Kaltura Capture to turn your lectures into asynchronous videos
