Student schedules are often at odds, forcing them to miss needed classes due to time conflicts. Departments have limited faculty resources, and cannot offer courses every term at times to meet every need. This paper describes the use of instruction via videotape to offer students an option for taking courses when they cannot attend at the scheduled time. Delivery of instruction by videotape is not new; this paper describes efforts to adapt this method to specific circumstances and student needs. This has resulted in higher course enrollments when videotape and traditional sections are combined for teaching load purposes, and has permitted students to complete graduation requirements when, without this option, they would have been delayed due to scheduling conflicts.
