Cloud recording

Cloud recording in Zoom is available to instructors for instructional purposes. Please note these considerations:

  • Due to limited storage space, Zoom Cloud Recording may only be used for instructional purposes. Users may continue to make recordings to local devices for any purpose.
  • Zoom Cloud Recording is available only to faculty and teaching assistants. Recordings of classes linked to Canvas will automatically be transferred to YuJa servers for permanent storage, auto-captioning, and sharing with your class. Instructors will also have the opportunity to make simple edits to the recording once it has been transferred to YuJa.
  • All data stored on the Zoom Cloud will be purged after 30 days.
  • Any Zoom Cloud recordings not automatically transferred to YuJa servers will be available to download for 30 days.
  • Instructions for recording will be available prior to the start of summer session '20 on the website.
