Viewing Requirements:

Process for Course Access: For compliance with FERPA, ADA, and U.S. Copyright Law, all course lecture capture content must be accessed through a Sakai catalog link. This allows access to be limited to students and instructors in the course being captured. After you complete the lecture capture request form for your course, you will receive instructions on setting up the Sakai catalog link.

For Events: At this time, all recorded and streamed content for events is publicly available on the Internet. Anyone recording a lecture is required to comply with FERPA, ADA, and U.S. Copyright Law.

  • FERPA Compliance: Public recordings cannot capture any student identifying data (including images, names and voices) without express written consent from the students (we have a media release form for you to use to get consent). Visit Rice University’s FERPA and Lecture Capture FAQs for more details.
  • ADA Accommodations: We provide closed captioning and other accommodations for online lecture capture recordings when a formal request for student accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has been received from the UNC Accessibility Resources and Services (ARS) Office ( Students who need such accommodation should contact the ARS directly: For additional questions, contact us at
  • U.S. Copyright Law: We cannot record copyright-protected content (including images, text, and video), because public recordings are not covered under academic fair use.

Please contact Aiya Williams, Instructional Technology Manager at for questions and clarification.

How long can my content be accessed?

Captured content will only be available online during the semester it was captured. Contact us at if you need your content accessible past the semester it was recorded in.

How long will you store my content?

Captured content will be held for two (2) years, after which it will be deleted. Contact us at if you need you content stored for longer than two (2) years.

Can I make my recording/stream private to my class?

We’re currently running a pilot, in which recordings can only be accessed through Sakai by members of a Sakai site. Contact us at for more information.

Who can I record/stream?

The only person who can be recorded without a release form is the instructor of the course. Guest speakers and students need to sign a media release form. The instructor of the class must retain these signed forms permanently.

What can I record/stream?

Classes, dissertations, meetings, and events.
