Adopt the WebOption

To book WebOption services for your course, please respond to the email request that is sent to faculty prior to the start of each term. Space is limited, so please be prompt in your reply. To request an LEC60 Section for your course, please contact your department head in advance of course registration to discuss your interest in adopting this kind of WebOption section for your courses.

 

Types of WebOption

 

Supplementary
Lectures of the current semester are video-recorded and posted online. Students are encouraged to attend the live lectures and review the lecture recordings online. Instructors are welcome to request this type of WebOption service directly with the WebOption Coordinator.
 
LEC60 Section
Lectures of the current semester are video-recorded and posted online, however, it is an additional lecture section that is available for students to enroll in which is an online-only section. Departments arrange this type of WebOption service through the Registrars office. For students, enrollment into an LEC60 section is similar to that of standard lecture sections. All of the course resources are available to these students, including TA's and office hours except the student enrolled in this section does not have a reserved seat in the classroom. The instructor, at their discression, may allow LEC60 enrolled students to take part in the in-class lectures depending on the space available.
 
Summer LEC60 Section
Lectures videotaped in a previous semester are re-mounted as an online-only course in the Summer Semester. There is no option to attend lectures in-person.

 

Expectations of Instructors

When you arrive at your classroom one of the friendly WebOption videographers will hand you a lapel microphone and then set up our recording equipment in an unobtrusive location in the lecture theatre. When you see the "thumbs up", the video is running and all is working well. Go ahead and lecture, then return the microphone afterwards. If you use PowerPoint slides, our preferred method of delivery is via email, if the file size is greater than 15Mb then you can send your files using the University's secure File Transfer Service to our generic email address - webopt@utsc.utoronto.ca. For sessional instructors who can not access this service please contact the WebOption Coordinator to discuss an alternative delivery method.
