For those willing to offer extra credit to students who attend in-person, the Lectures Program staff will scan student IDs at the end of the program, allowing faculty to easily access a list of students who attended. Faculty can sign up classes through the Lectures Program website:

However, attendance cannot be tracked via the live stream or the recording. If you have questions about signing up your classes or the attendance tracking process, please email Amanda and Laura at
