Record Your Zoom Meeting

There are two ways to record your Zoom meetings: in the cloud or on your local computer. The preferred method is recording to the cloud.

Record Your Meeting in the Cloud

You can record your Zoom meetings directly online so that video files will be available to students in your Canvas course Videos area after your meeting has ended. This is a two-step process.

(Note: a "Protecting Privacy and Data During Remote Instruction" statement has been added to the Additional Items section of the syllabus clarifying students' rights if Zoom sessions are recorded.)

Step One - Record Your Meeting (Cloud)

  1. Start a Zoom meeting as the host in your Canvas course. You must be in your Canvas course and launch zoom from the Zoom section of your course.
  2. Once you are in the Zoom meeting, look at the menu buttons (pictured below) and click “Record.”
  3. A box will come up asking you to Record on this Computer or to Record to the Cloud. Select "Record to the Cloud."

  4. Your meeting is now being recording and the recording button will now change to a "stop recording" button. The following pop-up window will also appear for your participants to notify them that the meeting is being recorded and if they wish to continue.

Step Two - Access Your Recorded File (In Canvas)

  1. After the meeting has ended, the recording will be available to you in the Zoom area of your Canvas course. Click the "Cloud Recordings" tab, and then click the recording title beneath the "Topic" to display the recorded video and audio files. Note that students do not have access to the "Cloud Recordings" tab.

  2. After a few minutes, the recording will also automatically become available in the “Videos” area of your Canvas course for you and your students to access throughout the duration of your course. After the recording is imported to "Videos," the recording is removed from "Cloud Recording."

 

Alternative Option: Record Your Meeting on Your Local Computer and then Upload to Canvas

Instead of recording your Zoom meetings directly to the cloud, you can opt to record your meetings locally to your computer and then upload the files into your Canvas course for students to access. This is a three-step process.

Step One - Record Your Meeting (Local Computer)

  1. Start a Zoom meeting as the host in your Canvas course. This means you must launch Zoom from the Zoom tab within your actual course.
  2. Once in the Zoom meeting, look at the menu at the bottom of the screen, and click “Record.”
  3. Select "Record on this Computer."

Step Two - Access Your Recorded File (Local Computer)

  1. After the meeting has ended, Zoom will convert the recording so you can view the files.

  1. Once the conversion is complete, there will be an option to save the files in the Zoom folder or to select a destination. You can choose to save it in a New folder or place on your computer at that point. Once it is saved, the folder containing the recorded files will open.
  2. Note by default:
    • The audio/video file (mp4) will be named Zoom_0.mp4.
    • The audio-only file (m4a) will be named audio_only.m4a.

You can rename the files once the conversion is complete directly from your computer.

Step Three - Upload Your Recorded File to Canvas

  1. Go to your Canvas course and click on “Videos” in the course navigation menu.
  2. Click the blue “Create” button.
  3. Select “Upload Media” from the drop-down menu.record_zoom_07b.png
  4. Use the following menu to drag the recorded video or audio file from your computer and drop it into the center of the pop-up window. Your file will begin uploading.

  5. A green checkmark will appear to the left of your file once the upload is complete.
  6. Click “X” to close the window.

  7. The file will now appear in the Videos area of your Canvas course. Note that students can access and watch the recordings via the same Videos area of your Canvas course.

Do NOT upload Zoom recordings to any other area of your course. All Zoom recordings must be uploaded to your course Videos area.
