Zoom Web Conferencing: Sharing the Recording


Sharing the Recording

How to Share a Zoom Recording

In the Zoom meeting click on Record and choose one of the following options:

  • Record on this computer if you want to save the recording file on your laptop. Keep your laptop connected to WIFI until Zoom displays a confirmation that the download is complete. 
  • Record In the cloud if you want to eliminate the time needed to stay connected while the recording processes.


Automatically Load Recordings to Your Canvas Course Site

See the guide, Schedule Zoom Meetings and Automatically Share in Canvas, to learn how to schedule in advance Zoom meetings in your Canvas course site. This enables your Zoom meeting recording to upload automatically into that Canvas course site and give students access to the recording.

  • If you chose to Record in the Cloud, download your recording from your account at within 10 days

  • If you chose to Record on this Computer, you will find the recording file in a Zoom folder in your computer's Documents
