Pre-recorded lectures fulfill the accommodation for 'Use of a Recorder'. Students with an approved accommodation to record lectures will be able to record all livestream lectures.
Permission will be granted via a signed agreement form. Students who do not wish to be recorded will be expected to participate in discussions through other means (ex. online chat or forum discussions). Faculty can request recordings be turned off during discussions if the discussion is sensitive in nature.
To ensure students who do not want to be recorded have turn off their cameras/microphones, please send the following notice to the class:
“Please be advised that all live online course materials, including lectures and discussion periods, may be recorded to allow for academic accommodations and/or missed classes due to illness. Students are required to delete these recordings upon completion of the course.”
Please indicate to the class the approximate time it should take for them to complete the test/exam.
If the test/exam return time is more than double the approximate writing time (ex. 24 hours to return a 3 hour exam), no additional time will be awarded. The additional processing time is included in the return time.
Students have been instructed to email requests directly to professors one week before the assignment due date to negotiate an accommodated due date (maximum of a 2-week extension from the original due date).
If you are unsure how to proceed with an extension approval or for guidance on specific cases, please contact Rose-Marie Nigli at accessibilityservice [at] tyndale [dot] ca or Sharon Chuah at schuah [at] tyndale [dot] ca.
Consult individual student accommodation plans to learn how much additional time should be awarded. Extra time can be added through Moodle once students have requested their exam accommodations.
