Years ago I asked about the possibility to video lectures to save records of them online for students to use for studying and was told I couldn't because it would probably violate FERPA.
This year because of covid I have to videotape all lectures in case students don't feel like coming to campus or fall ill.
Basically all the things we were told you can't do that would make academia more accessible are suddenly being done. It's almost like they could have been done all the time.
I had the same idea, about 20 years ago
I don't know ehat FERPA is but I was told it would have been illegal
And here we are, now
