To Record or Not to Record in the Virtual Classroom

Has this ever happened to you:  you announce a training session that will be delivered in a live virtual classroom and someone who would like to attend but cannot asks if he or she can get access to the recording.  Recording virtual classroom training is usually just a matter of learning how to set up the recording and how to retrieve it so you can share it with others.

Recording a session can be beneficial, however, the real question to ask is whether or not it makes sense to record and how the recording could impact the live session.  For example, last week at my work at the World Bank, we offered a session on women’s security issues when traveling in Latin America.  Some women who wanted to attend had conflicts and it was tempting to record the session so they could listen to it on their own.  However, we wanted participants to share personal experiences during the session and we thought that recording might inhibit sharing, so we opted for no recording.
