To save your Zoom recordings for a longer time, it is recommended that users save their recordings and then host them on our Ensemble video hosting site. Professors can then share these recordings in their Blackboard class through the LTI.

Save and Share Zoom Recordings in Blackboard

  1. In your Zoom session, you can either save your Recording to the Cloud or Download it directly to your device. (if you record straight to your device, skip to step #5)
