Good news! Your Zoom meetings can be recorded and it is easy to do. The recording will contain the primary video feed and a smaller video feed showing the active speaker. Zoom has two different options for your recordings, local recording or cloud recording. We recommend the cloud recording option but this article explains how both options will work.

When you are in your Zoom session, you will see a record button on the menu bar at the bottom. (See, fig. 1)

Click on the record button, and it will display the two options. (See, fig. 2)

If you select "Record on this Computer", Zoom will create a folder on the computer and the recording will automatically be placed in that folder once your meeting has concluded. You may then either upload the recording to a service such as YouTube or Kaltura or just keep the recording on your local computer for future use.

If you select "Record to the Cloud", Zoom will upload the recording into the Zoom Cloud. This is a temporary storage location while the recording is automatically uploaded into Kaltura. Kaltura is our campus wide video management solution. 

The Zoom cloud recordings and files will be deleted after 120 days. If you would like to download the video recordings, audio recordings or chat transcripts we recommend that you do so on the same day of the Zoom meeting. Once the video is uploaded to Kaltura, you may share it with your class in Canvas. The recordings in Kaltura will not be purged.
