How can I record and share my class meetings with my students?

There are several ways to record class meetings, and you will need to find the one that works best for your circumstances. 

Recording on Zoom

If you are using Zoom to conduct online class meetings, there are two ways to record. You can record on your local device and then share by uploading the videos to My Media in Brightspace. Or you can record in the cloud. Recording to the cloud is explained in this guide. These cloud recordings will be available for students to view for 90 days. If you’d like to save your videos, we suggest downloading them to your computer for future use.

 

Recording on Virtual Classroom

If you are using the built-in Virtual Classroom in Brightspace to conduct online class meetings, you can find directions for recording here.

⇒Please note that recorded Virtual Classroom meetings are available only within the course they were created, cannot be downloaded or edited, and are retained for only 14 days.

 

Recording on Another Video Conferencing Tool

If you are using some other tool for online meetings or do not want to use the built-in recording tools, you can always screen record your class meeting using Kaltura My Media. The My Media tool has a built-in Capture feature that will record the audio and video for anything you display on your screen. It also allows you to record yourself using a webcam or just a microphone. Here are instructions for using the Kaltura Capture tool. Anything you capture with Kaltura will be available on Kaltura and easily shareable until you delete it.
