Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) Compliant Local Recording in Zoom
Zoom recordings should not capture student attendee faces or names as a student's attendance and/or participation in class is part of the student's education record and is protected under FERPA, These instructions will help ensure the recorded session only captures the presenter as well as any content shared with attendees. The faces and names of students will not be recorded.
Zoom AI Closed Captioning option
Artificial Intelligence (AI) Closed Captioning (CC) is now available for all Zoom calls. For more information click here. However, Zoom AI CC is not Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant and does NOT satisfy requests for reasonable accommodations. All reasonable accommodation requests need to be routed through OU Accessibility and Disability Resource Center (ADRC). If a need is determined, ARDC will contact AMDS. AMDS will work with the college to provide ADA compliant live transcription captioning services through a third-party vendor.
What if I need a Zoom Webinar or Large Meeting license?
Users can request a loaner Zoom Webinar (500 or 1000 Participant) or Zoom Large Meeting (500 or 1000 Participant) license if they do not believe their department will need to purchase an annual license. These loaner Webinar/Large Meeting licenses are first come first serve. Users will receive their license at minimum 24 hours prior to their event dates and will have the license revoked at minimum 24 hours after their event. If a department is needing to run registration, they can open registration for a regular Zoom meeting and convert that meeting to a webinar.
Users will also need to run any reports needed prior to the revoking of the loaner webinar license.
For loaner Zoom Webinar/Large Meeting license requests, please go to the OU IT Service Portal, sign in and select the “Browse Services” button in “IT Services”. Select the "Communication and Collaboration" category. Select "Collaboration Tools", then select "Zoom". Select the "Request Service" button on the right of the screen. Fill out all requestor data and select "Webinar/Large Meeting Loaner" in the "What action would you like to take?" drop down menu.

Lastly, select the number of participants for the Webinar/Large Meeting in the "Amount" field and submit (IT provides a 500/1000 Webinar loaner license and a 500/1000 Large Meeting loaner license). You will then receive a confirmation email with a "Service Request" number from IT Service Desk.
