Class Recording On-Line FAQ
Currently, these recorded files generally are accessible only using Windows 7 and the Internet Explorer browser. Class and other co-curricular recordings are in the Windows Media Video format, available through a password protected web portal. (Note:some class recordings may be available as mp3 audio files in the course L drive handouts folder accessible on/off campus through http://thestable.wlu.edu).
Lawmedia in the Law School has recorded classes since 1976. The class recording policy remains the same. Professors have either given permission to have their classes recorded, or they require students to seek permission for each class recorded.
If permission is required, you must make the request to the professor and be certain to have that professor inform us by phone 540-458-5870 or email Lawmedia@wlu.edu to record the class for you. If you copy lawmedia on the request, we'll record the class but hold the release of it subject to approval unless the professor has instructed us not to do that.
When you make a class recording request, you'll need to be specific. What, when, where - and your W&L network logon username. If you are making a request on behalf of an event, we still need the what, when, where - won't need your username, but we will need to know if you want the recording restricted to a certain person or group.
For classes that don't require permission every time from the professor or for Professors who have asked us to record the class for everyone in the class, the recordings will be in a folder with the class name. All other class recordings that you have permission to view will be in the "Media Library" in a folder with your name.
