Looking for how to access class recordings?

Audio/Video Recording of Classes

Class and event audio and video recordings are the intellectual property of Loyola Law School and the speaker/professors.

Recordings may only be used by authorized students who have access through a course home page or have been given explicit permission by a professor, such as through approval on Class Recordings App.

Sharing of recordings with others who are not authorized (inside or outside the school) or storing recordings past the duration of the course for which they were requested is strictly prohibited.

Contact instructional.technology@lls.edu for more information.

Availability – Release Policies

Professors have the option of making class recordings available in the following ways:

  • Release all audio recordings (Links will be posted on the course home page in TWEN or Brightspace)
  • Release audio recordings if requested by the student (student will need to use the Class Recordings Request Form to receive a link)
  • Release audio recordings if requested by the student and the request is approved by the professor (student will need to use the Class Recordings Request form and wait for professor approval to receive a link)

Please allow up to 2 business days for processing.  However, recordings are usually available within 24-hours of the class taking place.  If a link is missing, please contact Instructional Technology for assistance.

Official Class Audio Recordings

The Instructional Technology Department audio records all courses listed by the Office of the Registrar. To accommodate, all classrooms and seminar rooms are audio recorded Monday through Friday, 8am-11pm. However, access to course audio recordings is not automatic.

Official Class Video Recordings

Some professors may choose to have their courses video captured. If so, recordings will be released in accordance with the professors’ chosen recording release policy as described in the section titled Availability – Release Policies.

Special Situations/Requests

If a student experiences a serious illness , family emergency, or has an absence to observe a religious holiday, they may contact the professor to request that the class recordings be made available, regardless of the professor’s original policy. If the professor is unavailable, the student may contact the Office of Student Affairs.

In addition, some professors require that a student receive verification and approval from the Office of Student Affairs before the professors will permit recording of a class be released due to an absence or other unforeseen circumstances.

If a student feels that they have a disability for which a class recording is an appropriate accommodation, the student should contact the Office of Student Affairs to discuss their situation. The Office of Student Affairs can advise the student regarding the accommodation request procedure.

Personal Class Recordings

Students must obtain explicit permission from the professor of the class or a guest speaker in class before creating a personal recording (video or audio) of the class.

It is generally assumed by professors that the official class recordings are the only recordings being created for the course, so explicit permission to create a personal recording must be obtained and documented.  Let the professor know how the recording will be created, how the recording will be used and stored, and how the recording will be destroyed at the end of the class.  (E.g., some note-taking applications allow for audio recordings)

If a student is granted permission to create their own recordings, they must provide their own video or audio recording equipment.
