Best Practices for recording Blackboard Collaborate sessions:
- Tutorial for recording a session
- Tell students up front that the session will be recorded and why.
- Be clear about why you are recording (e.g. so that students who can’t attend or have technical issues during, can review later).
- Tell students that the recordings are stored on a Canadian-based server.
- Advise students up front that they should not share the recording with anyone not in the class.
- Give students the option of participating through audio/microphones or just via the chat room, etc.
- Finally – instructors need to know where the recordings are and tell their students how to access them.
