Lecture capture: Privacy, please

Commentary by Stephen Downes

People who attend the tapings of sitcoms and game shows don't expect privacy. I don't see why students attending lectures at universities should expect to be any different. Today, when you attend class, the cameras will be on (unless it's one of those very small and intimate seminars, but even here, no single rule prevails). So this article seems to me a bit knee-jerk - especially later on, as it suggests simply limiting access to class recordings to enrolled students. That said, people more sympathetic to the basic premise will find it to be a useful outline and guide to preserving student privacy in lecture-capture situations.
