Accessing and Downloading Course Materials

The Technology, Education and Copyright Harmonization Act of 2002 (TEACH Act) provides that you can download courses to desktops and laptops but not mobile devices. Lectures are viewable live during the scheduled class times and available for download approximately 20-30 minutes after the class end times.

Once you download videos and lectures, you can watch videos within the current academic quarter in which you are enrolled. And you agree that you WILL NOT:

  • Share
  • Upload to the Internet or anywhere other than your own device(s) for your own personal use
  • Sell or distribute
  • Edit or alter the content in any way

Please note that by downloading lecture videos you are agreeing to adhere to the TEACH Act and the Stanford Honor Code and at the conclusion of the academic quarter you are required to delete all downloaded videos. Distribution of this content is a major violation of the Stanford Student Honor Code. If found in violation of copyright law,  penalties can reach fines up to $150,000.
