Recording and Finding Recordings in Zoom for Instructors
A guide to recording and finding recordings on Zoom for instructors.
Recording and Finding Recordings from Zoom for Instructors
Important Note: All Zoom Cloud recordings get deleted after 30 days. If you record Zoom meetings to the Cloud, a copy will be retained in your Illinois Media Space account. We recommend recording to the Cloud, so you can access recordings after 30 days.
Recording in Zoom
It is recommended that you enable automatic recording for all online sessions. This can be done by checking the Automatically record meeting box and selecting In the cloud in "Meeting Options." This option enables the recording to start as soon as the meeting begins and saves the recording in the cloud.
Alternatively, recording can be done manually by clicking the Record button on the Zoom meeting toolbar. The disadvantage to this method is the need to remember to do it at the start of every session.
Read more about automatic recording on Zooms website.
Finding Recordings in Zoom
To access class recordings from your Canvas course space, click Zoom Live and navigate to the Cloud Recordings tab.
Click the desired recording to access it. Recordings can be viewed online or downloaded to your computer.
You can also view your meeting recordings by logging in to illinois.zoom.us and select the Recordings tab to view available recordings.
Note: By default, recordings will be deleted automatically after they have been stored for 30 days.
If your recording is locked behind a password, locate the recording in illinois.zoom.us, and select Share > disable the "Password protect" setting.
