Recordings can serve the interests of the learning community by providing students with a convenient study aid or with evidence of accomplishment before the camera. Recordings can provide instructors with feedback on the effectiveness of their presentation. However, recording and other communication devices can also be sources of distraction that interfere with the learning process; and if misused can facilitate academic dishonesty or the theft of intellectual property.

UCLA Extension programs may not be recorded or reproduced in any medium for either non-commercial or commercial public distribution without the prior explicit permission of the Dean of UCLA Extension. The purpose of this policy is to identify those to whom authority has been delegated to grant permission for recording when there is no public distribution, and to ensure that when approved, the act of recording does not interfere with the learning process.

Selling, preparing or distributing lecture notes or video or audio recordings of any UCLA Extension course for any public distribution is prohibited.
