University policy (PROV-008: Teaching Courses for Academic Credit – Section 5) “prohibits the recording or transmission of classroom lectures and discussions by students unless written permission from the Instructor has been obtained and all students in the class as well as guest speakers have been informed that audio/video recording may occur.”
Students receiving an accommodation including recording of classroom lectures and discussions are exempt from this policy, however, restrictions on distribution do apply. Also, a personal recording of this information is not a transfer of any copyrights.
Instructors may want to include language in their syllabus alerting class members they may be recorded. It is also encouraged that a statement indicating that recording for personal study be allowed by any class member. Many students who benefit from later review of recorded lectures do not have a disability or issue that would qualify them for an accommodation through SDAC. Providing permission in the syllabus opens that option for all students.
If broad application is not applicable to your class, a statement allowing recording by permission (per policy direction) should be included.
