Records Retention and FERPA Policies
In order to comply with Texas State University records retention policy, it is recommended to keep all classroom recordings made in Zoom for 2 years.
These records fall within the category CUR230 – Course Records, and SAD200 - Student Records, Academic Department - and currently have a retention period of AC+2 years, where AC=end of the semester (4 weeks after last class day) in which the course was taught. Your recorded meetings will save to your computer, and can be uploaded to Texas State's video content management system, Mediaflo.
It is our opinion that, in order to be in compliance with FERPA, classroom recordings that contain identifiable student information (NetIDs, text chat, video chat, voice, names or images) not be reused for any other class or purpose at any time.
