Beware the pitfalls of videotaping your classes

Several law professors now tape their classes and make those videos available to students on school websites or through iTunes.  However, this article from the Chronicle of Higher Education points out that when you tape a class, you expose to the world any faux pas, classroom foibles, or may even violate student confidentiality should an after-class private discussion about a grade get caught on tape.  At the very least, it might make life a lot more uncomfortable for you if an off-hand comment about your dean or a joke taken out of context winds up on YouTube.

You can read the full article here.
