Cloud Recording Retention
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)
Recordings that reach 120 days old will expire and move into the Trash.
Cloud recordings that had previously disabled auto-deletion should not be impacted and will retain their no-auto-deletion setting.
Long-Term Use of Cloud Recordings
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:
- Google Drive (for Staff & Faculty use)
View Help on Google Drive
- Kaltura Media (for Faculty use only)

Student 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.
