No one is permitted to record any of the class sessions, either with video or audio recorders, unless you first discuss it with the instructor and receive written permission to do so.
However, each Zoom session will be recorded for those who, for any reason, are unable to be with us synchronously. The link to the stored recordings will be available in Sakai.
