Are you using Zoom to record class as you engage your remote students? Typically, you don’t have time to upload your recording before the next class begins. However, if you record your lecture to the Cloud, it is automatically available on your zoom account to share with your students via Moodle or Canvas. When you start a Zoom meeting, just select Record to the Cloud on the record option.
To locate your recordings, login to http://semo.zoom.us/ and select Recordings on the left menu to see a list of your recordings save to the Cloud. There is a Share option on the left that provides a link to the recording. In order to ensure that your students will be able to access the video, check the radio button labeled Publicly not “Only authenticated users can view”. While this means that theoretically “the public” can access the video, users would a) need the link, and b) the passcode. NOTE: By default, all recordings have a passcode assigned. You can change and share that passcode, or if you like, you can turn the passcode off.
Storing recordings to the Cloud is easy and convenient, but it isn’t free. The university has purchased additional storage, but it is still limited. We ask that you help us manage our overall storage use by limiting the number of recordings you keep in the Cloud. One approach would be to leave your recordings in the Cloud for up to two weeks for student review; then download it to your local computer and delete it from the Cloud. You can also upload the recordings to Office 365 Stream or Canvas Studio for longer term storage if you want your students to continue to have access to them.

NOTE: If you are planning to record video using Zoom, but not in a classroom, please record to your local computer if possible. Then you can upload that video to Canvas Studio or Office 365 Stream. Consider prioritizing the use of cloud storage for classroom use when there is little time to retrieve and post videos.
