Zoom can be used to record an in-person class even when no one is connected remotely to the meeting.  As of Fall 2021, this the recommended method of classroom and event recording in the College of Law.

    • to sign in for the first time
      • select "sign in with SSO"
      • enter "syracuseuniversity" in the space prompted (this may be automatically filled for you)
      • sign in at the SU prompt with your normal NetID and password
      • the app should now remain signed in each time you log in to the machine, without needing to reactivate it each time
  • Begin the meeting
    • we recommend setting up a recurring meeting, much as we did while teaching remotely, so that the meeting ID remains consistent throughout the semester
