How do I make sure what I write on the whiteboard is included in my lecture recording?

In some classrooms, dedicated cameras are installed to capture anything written on the whiteboard. By default, whiteboards are not included in lecture recordings, however, so be sure to contact caen-lecture-recording@umich.edu to ensure the setting is enabled for your course.

To enable this setting yourself, go to your lecture recording sites and find your course. Follow the Site Info link:

Under Default Options, select Enable Whiteboard:

Enabling this setting will only work in classrooms with whiteboard recording available.

If you require whiteboard recording and are not in one of the equipped classrooms, you can request a reservation via the College's 25Live system.
