Class Recording On-Line FAQ
Law classes that are recorded are available through a password protected web portal. These recordings are in the Windows Media Video format - available as wmv streaming files, and playable on both PC and older MAC computers with the appropriate plugin (you should be prompted for the plugin which will be downloaded to you from our server) installed. THE RECORDING SYSTEM DOES NOT SUPPORT CURRENT MAC OS.
Lawmedia in the Law School has recorded classes for 35 years. The class recording policy remains the same. Professors have either given permission to have their classes recorded, or they require students to seek permission for each class recorded.
If permission is required, you must make the request to the professor and be certain to have that professor inform us by phone 540-458-5870 or email Lawmedia@wlu.edu to record the class for you. If you copy lawmedia on the request, we'll record the class but hold the release of it subject to approval unless the professor has instructed us not to do that.
When you make a class recording request, you'll need to be specific. What, when, where - and your W&L network logon username. If you are making a request on behalf of an event, we still need the what, when, where - won't need your username, but we will need to know if you want the recording restricted to a certain person or group.
Professors that don't require permission or who have asked us to record the class for everyone in the class will have a folder with the individual recordings. All other class recordings that you have permission to view will be in the "Media Library" in a folder with your name.
