Audio & Video Recording Requests
Class Lectures, Presentations, and Performances
Barnard faculty members may request the audio or video recording of their lectures, in-class presentations or course-related performances. Please review the following options for recording:
- For the majority of class lectures, an audio recording is simplest and most efficient method to provide access. Faculty members can fill out the Equipment Request Form to reserve and pick up the equipment. IMATS staff will provide training and assistance as needed. When they return the equipment, IMATS staff will help upload the file to CourseWorks.
- For those courses where the presentation relies on visuals, such as a chemistry or math lecture, video recording can be requested. Faculty members are asked to fill out the Video Recording Request Form at least one week in advance so an IMATS staff member can be scheduled to video record the class lecture.
- Students who plan to miss class for a religious holiday or other excused absence should speak to their course instructor to request an audio recording of the lecture.
Class Presentations and Performances
- Faculty can request to have class presentations recorded for pedagogical use. A link will be posted to CourseWorks for students to access the digital video file. The video file(s) will be available for one semester.
- Faculty can also request to have lectures, presentations or performances of guest speakers, choreographers, directors, etc. recorded. A link will be posted via Dropbox for the guest to access and download the digital video file. Videos will be available for one month.
*Workshops and tutorials are available for students to use to learn how to make compilations of their performances for their reels and resumes.
- Faculty members can request support for teaching or research-related video or Web conferencing. Please contact Alexis Seeley at 212-854-0408 or email@example.com for more information.
