A lecture can be recorded and used by students participating in that particular course section or sections that meet together via video conferencing. If a faculty member wishes to record their lecture(s) and make them available to students in that section(s) you are within FERPA, assuming the recording is available in a secure environment. Students do not have the right to anonymity under FERPA within their own classes.
Faculty who wish to record lectures for use in later semesters or with other sections must take steps to comply with FERPA. You can comply with FERPA by collecting consent from each student in the course being recorded. The issue with this approach is that we cannot deny a student their right to education or to a service if they choose to decline consent. Students who choose not to be recorded must be out of the camera's line of site. Another way to comply is to record the course in such a way that the students' identity in the course is never revealed, do not record faces. Only record the instructor and material being shared. If you are recording class sections of a course a statement is required to be included in the syllabus. Following is an example.
This class is being recorded for use with current and future sessions. Students' images may be included in the recording of each session. Although student images are part of the University of Idaho's directory information, each student will be asked to sign a release indicating their participation in recordings. Students who do not wish to be recorded should check with the instructor for a seat outside of the camera's view.
Storing student information in the cloud is prohibited. Never save a recording to your personal device. Recording should be stored in a secure place identified by ITS (Share Drive, One Drive, or other approved security drives).
