Occasional Use of Zoom for Instructional Hours

Information you may want to include in your syllabus if using Zoom for occasional use for instructional hours:

Advance Notice: Contact the instructor at least one week in advance of the particular session to request approval to participate remotely through Zoom.

Attendance: If the student is able to fully participate and interact with students and the instructor,  the instructor may mark the student in “attendance.” However, if the instructor records any class sessions and make them available to students, watching a video of a session does not constitute “attendance” as defined by the university.

Recording of Class Sessions: Students should be aware that the instructor may determine a need to record a class session using videoconference software. The instructor will announce verbally that a recording is being made at the beginning of any recording.

Accessibility

Videoconferencing allows accessibility for all students as a universal design and might be used in the Concordia “classroom” to address individuals with documented need for accommodations. As with all accommodations, the Director of Accessibility

Services will set this up with the instructor and the student. Zoom enables FERP A/HIP AA compliance and provides end-to-end 256-bit encryption. Accessibility for Zoom is maintained by Zoom Video Communications, Inc. (https://zoom.us), not Concordia University. Specific information about accessibility is provided by Zoom within the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) Statement, available here: Zoom and Accessibility.

How to Connect to Global Learning Outcomes in CU Syllabus

November 6, 2019

Reminder from Leah Dvorak, Vice Provost of Faculty Affairs

A change to any of the following components of a course syllabus require that the department or program submit the syllabus for review as a “revised” syllabus:

  • Course Title
  • Course Number
  • Credit Hours
  • Course description (aka catalog description)

This is to ensure that the university catalog, schedule, academic advising, and admission teams possess current, accurate information about all courses offered by the university.
