The fee for Video with Operator Course Capture has been reduced from $2000 to $1000 for the Fall 2021 semester. This fee only applies to auditoriums in Wheeler Aud, Pimental, 2050 VLSB, and 245 Li Ka Shing. This is not to be confused with the new feature Video without Operator service that has been added to other existing classrooms. The new Course Capture Video with Operator service remains free to use.

Beginning with the fall 2016 semester, courses utilizing ETS’s Course Capture service to record and publish their classes will benefit from an enhanced security feature which will limit content access to users with a CalNet identity. Thanks to the extension of our Berkeley domain identities (CalNet login) to the YouTube interface, we can now limit access to course videos to those users logged in with their Berkeley ID.
