Disclosure Statement for Recording during Synchronous Instruction
With the switch to remote instruction in the spring of 2020 and the use of video conferencing for class meetings, syllabi need to include a disclosure statement alerting students to their right to not have their image, voice, questions or comments recorded. Below is a sample disclosure statement to include in any syllabus for a course that will include recordings of remote class meetings:
I will be recording our class sessions and making the recording available on our course site on eLearn. This will be both an audio and a visual recording.
- if you participate with your video on or use a profile picture, you are agreeing to have your video and/or image recorded.
- if you participate by speaking, you are agreeing to have your voice recorded.
- if you participate by making comments in the chat feature, you are agreeing to have your name and comments recorded.
If you do not want your profile or video image recorded, turn off your video and remove your profile image. If you do not want your voice recorded, mute your microphone. If you do not want your name and comment(s) recorded, do not use the chat feature.
If you are unable to communicate with me during the class meeting due to your wish not to be recorded, please contact me to make other arrangements.
Below you’ll find a syllabus checklist that includes all the information you should include in your own syllabi, syllabus templates for various teaching modalities, and example syllabi for fictional courses. All files on this page are Word Documents for easy editing.
This information was last updated Summer 2019.
The syllabus checklist includes all of the items that are required in your syllabus, as well as recommended and optional items.
