All live distance courses (courses being offered in the current term) are delivered via the Internet for downloading and streaming. Most library courses (courses recorded from a previous term) are delivered via the Internet also; however, some are delivered via CDs only. Refer to the library course list for each course's available format. Access to the course lecture portal is available the first day of the semester.
In order to have access, you must be registered for the course. you will need your IdentiKey (CU username and password). If you are a continuing student, you should already have your IdentiKey. If you are a new student, you will obtain your IdentiKey after you register. If you don't recall what your IdentiKey is, then go to the CU Identity Manager to reset it. If any issues are encountered, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students registered for a distance course:
Students who are registered for a distance course through CAETE will automatically have access to view their course lectures via the Internet (streaming/downloading). CD-ROMs can be made available by special request. Refer to the Course Delivery page for more details.
Individuals not registered for a distance course:
If you are a main campus student and you are registered for a course that is being recorded and offered for distance students, you will have access to the recorded lectures that distance students receive. However, in some courses, instructors deny this access for main campus students. This decision is up to the instructor's discretion and not CAETE's decision.
Individuals who are not registered for a distance course or a main campus course that is being recorded for distance offering, but would like to gain access to the course may do so for a fee. To view rates, refer to the rate chart page. To request access, complete the Course Access / Media Request form.
Students previously registered for a distance course:
If you are completing an incomplete grade for a distance course from a previous semester and need access to the recorded lectures for that course, send an e-mail to email@example.com. Provide the following information: your full name, course number, course title, semester you took the course, and reason for access (completing an incomplete grade). Access permitted is only for the course that was recorded for the semester for which the student was enrolled in the course. If access is needed for another semester the course was recorded or is being recorded, permission from the instructor is needed. Permission from the instructor can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are requesting access because you lost your recordings or do not have them downloaded to your computer after the semester ended, the access fee is $100 per course.
Access to the course lecture portal is available the first day of the semester. Recorded lectures are uploaded to the portal 24 hours after the lecture has been taught on main campus. Recorded lectures are delivered via the Internet and can be viewed by streaming and/or downloading.
Access to library courses will be available the week the semester begins. Please note that only the lectures for the first 2/3 of the course are posted/available at the start of the term. The last 1/3 will be ready to view by mid term.
Access to the course lectures is only available until the end of the semester for which you are registered. Access is reset at the beginning of each semester according to your registration status. If you would like to keep the course recordings, be sure to download the course lectures to your computer by the end of the semester. In general, you will have two weeks from the last day of final exams to download the lectures. A $100 fee will be charged for further access to the recorded lectures after the semester ends.
Sample lectures are now available for most courses. When you click on the course description from any of the semester schedules or the comprehensive course list, the available lectures will be listed toward the bottom of the page.
