VIDEOTAPING OF CLASSES
Kellogg does not offer videotaping of classes for student viewing as attending and participating in classes is key to the educational process. Also, videotaping sometimes may inhibit participation or encourage absence. Students who must miss a class for an unavoidable reason (i.e. work, religious, or medical) should ask a classmate to take notes or request faculty permission to allow a classmate to audio record the class. Students may check out audio recording devices in advance by emailing kis-help@kellogg.northwestern.edu or visiting the KIS help desk in Room 125.  Extenuating circumstances will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
