The Office of Accessible Education (OAE) encourages all instructors to record their class sessions. OAE may need to access those recordings for the purpose of captioning, creating transcripts, or production of alternate format. Additionally, some students may be approved for an accommodation to record the session.

However, there may be classes where there are pedagogical reasons not to record a session or part of a session because of the sensitive nature of the topic. Instructors should alert students in the class to this at the start of the course, and, if pausing recording during a session in order to move into a sensitive discussion topic, remind students to pause their individual note-taking or lecture capturing methods.

Due to statutory and regulatory compliance issues associated with public posting of recorded lectures (e.g., student privacy, copyright), instructors should not post video content on any site other than their Stanford Canvas course site.
