Viewing Class Lectures

Welcome to the UT College of Natural Sciences' lecture viewing system. With the consent of faculty, we are recording audio and video of select class lectures and making them available to students on the web for review and study for the current semester. Students of these selected classes will have free, on-demand access to audio, video, graphics, text, images, and podcasts of their class. Please ask your professor if your class is available on-line through this system. 

Faculty, staff and students can access lecture videos using their UT EID via the following link:
