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.


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. (, not Concordia University. Specific information about accessibility is provided by Zoom within the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) Statement, available here: Zoom and Accessibility.
