Classroom recordings (Lecture capture)
Material for telecommunication and distance learning courses may be communicated to students and/or recorded for later viewing or listening. The university must take measures (such as use of digital locks) to limit the audience only to students enrolled in the course. Also the students and the university must destroy any recordings made within 30 days after the final course evaluations have been received by students.
Note that Section 30.01 (4) of the Copyright Act states “A student who is enrolled in a course of which the lesson forms a part is deemed to be a person on the premises of the educational institution when the student participates in or receives the lesson by means of communication by telecommunication.”
