Manage Zoom Recordings

Zoom recordings and student access to downloads

 Zoom recordings can be started by pressing Record on the bottom of the Zoom meeting window, and paused by clicking the pause icon . After the meeting has ended the recording will be processed and then made available.

  • Be mindful to record all Workshops delivered under the Southern Cross model.
  • While the recording of Tutorials is not mandatory, it is recommended for all online Zoom classes where appropriate.
  • Make sure you have a strategy in place that ensures you don't forget to record the meeting! Nominate a student to remind you to record, or start with a PowerPoint slide that says 'recording will now start'.
  • Be sure to make the recorded Workshops easily available to students. Zoom cloud stores the sessions for 180 days, so it may be necessary to download a copy and upload to Mediasite for longer-term storage and archival.

Cloud vs Local Recordings

Zoom allows you to record meetings in the Zoom Cloud or to locally save a copy of the meeting recording on your computer. If you are using the Zoom LTI integration within Blackboard the recordings are automatically saved in the Zoom cloud and will be stored there for 180 days. If you decide to use local recordings you will instead need to manage the recorded files, including converting these to other video formats and uploading them to a streaming server location (such as Mediasite).
