It's important to be aware of steps you can take to protect student privacy when using Zoom.
When recording class sessions or meetings in CarmenZoom:
- Don't share recordings that include personally identifiable student information with anyone that is not enrolled in your course.
- Consider recording an asynchronous lecture to share with all class sections.
- If you plan to share a recording for educational use beyond your course, ensure student video is not visible on screen, students' mics are muted and the chat is hidden.
- Include language in your syllabus about the purpose of Zoom recordings and the protection of student information. See the suggested language below.
- Tell students that you will be recording in advance. By default, Zoom notifies meeting participants that a meeting is being recorded, but it is best to have an acknowledgment from you.
- Allow students to turn off their camera and microphone using Stop Video and Mute in Zoom and participate via Chat if they prefer.
Include the following language in your syllabus:
Video and audio recordings of class lectures will be part of the classroom activity. The video and audio recording is used for educational use/purposes and may be made available to all students presently enrolled in the course.
