UMW Learning Collaborative
Faculty and Staff UMW Zoom accounts allow users to record meetings to the Zoom Cloud. The Zoom Cloud storage space is limited and shared by all Faculty and Staff, so it should not be considered a permanent place to store recordings, but there is sufficient space to store recordings for the active semester.
This guide assumes that you are recording for the sole purpose of sharing your recorded videos with students after the fact, and don’t intend to have them join the meeting while recording is in progress.
If that is the case, consider implementing the following settings when creating your meeting:
If you set up your meeting to automatically record when you created it, all you need to do is start your meeting and the recording will begin.
If you need to start or stop recording during a meeting, you can do so clicking the Record button in the Zoom toolbar at the bottom of your meeting’s Zoom window.
You will have the option to “Record to this Computer” or “Record to the Cloud” (you want the latter).
If you recorded your meeting using Zoom in Canvas, you can access the recording directly in Canvas. See our guide on Using Zoom in Canvas for these steps.
If you are using Zoom outside of Canvas, you can access your recordings via the UMW Zoom Web Portal.
Once you have accessed your cloud recordings as detailed in “Viewing Zoom Recordings” above, follow these steps to share, download, or delete them.
