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 the cloud on

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

"This Meeting is Recorded" Warnings and Notifications

Zoom will warn external users and guests if the meeting has been recorded, internal University of Waikato staff and student accounts will already be aware that the University may be recording.  Notifications will allow you to leave the meeting if you are unwilling to attend a recorded meeting.  You may also disable your camera and/or microphone.
