Zoom Cloud Recordings Expire After 120 Days Old.

The college must implement new storage and retention guidelines and requirements to better support and maintain our faculty and staff use of Zoom. These changes and requirements apply to recordings on:

  • Chemeketa Zoom website (chemeketa.zoom.us)
  • Recordings in eLearn (Canvas)


After Sept 28th, Recordings older than May 31st, 2020 will expire immediately and move into the Trash. Recordings that reach 120 days old will expire and move into the Trash.

New Recordings will only expire once they are older than 120 days. For example, a recording created on Sept 28th, 2020 would expire after Jan 26th, 2021.


Instructors and staff who need to keep recordings for more long-term use can download recordings from the Zoom website and then upload those recordings to the following locations:

Recordings and broadcasts of student activity online, in classrooms, or in other instructional settings may be used by the instructor and registered students for only internal class purposes and only by the students during the period in which the course is being offered.
