Lecture Capture Policy
********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.
I read the below noted news article about Lecture Capture policy at the University of Missouri with great interest.
Managing lecture capture is really important to us at a medical school. As a start-up, we are in the process of building our policies and procedures around a variety of issues, including lecture capture. I know that our faculty and students would not want to have their materials taken an posted elsewhere – particularly if the materials had been edited.
Our institution has a policy that:
1. Restricts lecture capture to those students who are enrolled in that class only.
2. Indicates that disciplinary measures would be taken against those individuals (faculty, staff, or students) who release and/or post lecture captured materials to persons who are not authorized to have access to the lectures (enrolled classmates; faculty assigned to that lecture).
3. Unauthorized release is considered “unprofessional behavior.” Among the penalties for unprofessional behavior is a failing grade in the course.
Is this enough? What else have you done in this regard? How effective has your institution been with regard to unauthorized release of lecture capture materials?
