What to expect
The automated lecture capture service is provided by a software and hardware application which gets scheduled and monitored by Brown staff. Captured content is generally available for viewing within 24 hrs of the recording. The purpose of this service is to supplement the classroom experience. Due to the nature of the system, errors may occur which result in failed recordings. Contact the Media Production Group if this is a concern.

Content Retention
Automated lecture capture class content is retained for 4 academic years at which point it is then deleted. For the first year the content is live (viewable on the web or on iTunes). From years 2 through 4, the content is archived. Any requests for exceptions can be made by emailing
