Zoom - Recording

Recording Functions with Zoom

Zoom has the function of recording a meeting, similar to the Panopto recording in the lecturers rooms. There are different options and methods on how a recording is managed. Both the host and participants have the option of recording a meeting.

    • Local Recording - records the meeting to the local device's hard-drive or share drive.
    • Cloud Recording - cloud recording allows you to record a meeting video and audio in the Cloud. This is automatically added to our coursecast system.

The recorded meetings can be managed or shared online by logging in to your account and visiting the My Recordings page .

How to start a local recording

The host can record. While you are in a Zoom meeting, move your mouse around the screen to toggle the menu bar.

How to start a cloud recording

  1. Start a meeting
  2. Select the Record button in the Zoom toolbar
  3. Select "Start Cloud Recording"
  4. To stop the recording press Stop Recording or end the meeting

Once the recording has been stopped, the recording must be processed before viewing. Zoom will send an email to the host email address when the process is completed.

Viewing the cloud recordings

Cloud recordings with Zoom are automatically encoded and added to a folder in our coursecast system.

To view your Zoom cloud recordings go to and you will see a folder called This folder is where your Zoom cloud recordings will be. From here you can share/edit the recording much like a Panopto recording.
