Read thorough through routines for online teaching (in Norwegian)

Employees may only record meetings in Zoom using their work PC which is managed by HiØ.
Students are basically NOT allowed to record meetings in Zoom.
This is because the recording (audio / video) is considered personal information and cannot be stored on private equipment. (GDPR regulations)
Students who have a special need to record meetings in connection with a master's project / research should contact IT Support, and may be allowed to borrow a HiØ machine that is approved for use for this purpose.

Be aware that there are special requirements that needs to be fullfilled if you are going to record a meeting that is regarded as red data. (Sensitive information).
