Allow Participants to Record

The instruction below will help you assign recording privileges to a participant. It may improve the learning experience of students with disabilities, but some of these approaches may also help those students participating by phone or whose first language is not English. 

IMPORTANT: In addition to privacy protection, some participants may have reasons for not wanting their presence in a particular class or presence at a particular institution to be recorded. Recordings without their knowledge and consent could put participants at risk. See Recordings in Learning Environments
