Cloud Recording

Cloud recording in Zoom is available to all UCSC employees. Please note these considerations:

  • Due to limited storage space, Zoom Cloud Recording is only avaliable to UCSC employees. All users may continue to make recordings to local devices.
  • 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 are available through the keepteaching.ucsc.edu website and this Zoom support acticle.
