UNITE Streaming Video Access for On-Campus Students

Courses with UNITE-enrolled students:
UNITE Distributed Learning makes streaming videos available to students enrolled in the on-campus sections of courses that UNITE offers to off-campus students, except in occasions when the instructor has asked that we do not make these videos available to those enrolled in the on-campus section(s) of the course.

Courses without UNITE-enrolled students:
Additionally, the Office of the Dean for the College of Science and Engineering sponsors the recording and streaming of courses scheduled in UNITE classrooms but are not offered to off-campus students through UNITE. As with the UNITE-offered courses, there are occasions where the instructor has opted out of this service.

In both cases, there is no additional charge to the students enrolled in the on-campus sections of these courses.
