Zoom Cloud Recordings

Faculty and Staff can record their Zoom meetings and share with others.

If your Zoom recordings include students please be sure to comply with FERPA privacy guidelines.

Using Zoom in Canvas

Instructors are encouraged to use the Zoom tool integrated within Canvas to schedule and manage Zoom meetings and recordings.

Note: Zoom Cloud Recordings require users to login before viewing the media. Users will be prompted to login using the college Single Sign On.

Privacy & FERPA

If your Zoom recordings include students please be sure to comply with FERPA privacy guidelines. 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.

Give students the option to opt out of a recorded session, in which case they can select Leave Meeting and view the recording later.
