Recording Zoom Meetings

Guidelines for Recordings

  • Keep your recoding short, topic specific, and ten minutes or less in duration.
  • Post the content to a server that is intended for streaming video . (Youtube is a favorite)
  • Consider posting the link to your content in Blackboard with a description of the content.
  • If you post your content to Youtube check the automatically created closed captions for accuracy.  Sometimes it will require some corrections. 
  • If you have opted to save your Zoom recording to the cloud be sure to check the text transcript for accuracy and make corrections if necessary.
  • Each Zoom professional account has a cloud recording storage limit of .5GB. To see how much you have used log into Zoom and select the recordings link found at the left of the screen. Cloud recordings will be automatically deleted after they have been stored for 120 days.
