In some instances, it may be helpful for a student to record an instructor's lecture. The student's letter of accommodation will make this recommendation to the instructor. Some instructors may ask for restrictions on how the student uses the recordings.
Some instructors will allow students to record lectures without a letter of accommodation or registration with DSS, if the student discusses their need with the instructor.DSS has had success with the LiveScribe Echo SmartPen. This device records while you write. There are two files that you can then upload to a computer; the handwritten file and the audio file. If you would like to checkout a SmartPen, stop by the office. Students must be registered with DSS to checkout devices.
