Video Classes from GT-Atlanta

  • Video classes originate from GT-Atlanta. Because of the 12-hour (summer, fall) or 13-hour (spring) time difference between Shenzhen and Atlanta, video classes are delivered to GT-Shenzhen asynchronously; that is, you download the video course materials from the GT server to your computer and view the materials offline.
  • Accessing video lectures for the video courses that you have registered for:
    • Method 1: You can access the video lectures from gtcourses.gatech.edu
    • Method 2: You can log into T-Square, click the “Classroom Recordings” link under Course Tools to access the video lectures
  • Zipped files of the lectures are scheduled for deletion two weeks from the lecture date. Please be sure to save those to your computer for the remainder of the semester.
  • The professor will determine due dates for assignments and exams for each course. To account for the amount of time it takes to post the video course content to the GT Distance Learning server following each in-class lecture in Atlanta, the professor can allow up to one week of delay in homework and exams submission for video students. It is within the professor’s right however to determine the exact number of days for the delay.
  • Use a scanner to scan your homework and then upload to T-Square. You can use the scanner in the GT-Shenzhen office.
  • For homework, you will need to log into T-Square and upload your assignment to your course drop box. Graded Homework will be returned to your drop box for you to view and print out. No email is sent announcing that graded work has been uploaded for you.
  • An exception to uploading homework to T-Square is if your professor gives the instructions that your homework is to be submitted to them in another way.
  • Exams are proctored by GT-Shenzhen staff. Proctors are the ONLY individuals that can submit exams. You are not allowed to have possession of the exam at any time except when taking it. As a student if you submit or retain an exam you have violated the GT Honor Code and may be subject to disciplinary action.
  • You will receive a confirmation email to your GT account upon successful submission. If you do not receive a confirmation first check with your proctor and then check with GT-Atlanta Distance Learning Office.
  • Graded exams that the GT Distance Learning Office receives will be uploaded to T-Square in your course drop box for you to view. If you do not see your graded exam after a reasonable period of time has passed please contact the professor to see if he/she returns graded exams. Professors are not required to return the actual graded work, only the grade.
  • If you take a video class during the last semester of your degree program, you can not officially graduate that semester because of the delay in submitting homework and exams and thus the delay in issuing grade for the video course. You will have to petition to graduate the following semester. For example, if you complete your last classes during the summer semester and at least one of the classes that you take is via video, you will graduate in December at the end of the fall semester.
  • For the above scenario, as part of your degree petition (for the following semester), you must complete the Enrollment Waiver Form, which informs the Degree Certification office that you will be graduating during a term in which you are not enrolled. You will NOT be assessed any tuition or fees during the semester that you do not enroll (fall semester in the above example).
