Recording a Meeting on a Local Computer or to Cloud

The information on this page will guide you to make decision on where you want to keep your meeting recordings.

Should you choose to record your meeting on your computer or record to cloud?

  • Record on this Computer: if you mainly want to keep the recording for yourself or want to edit it in a video editing application, choose this option. Afterwards, if you want to share it, you can upload it to YouTube or CUNY Dropbox and then post the link to the video in your course. This is a tutorial on sharing videos using Dropbox.
  • Record to the Cloud: if you want to share the recording right away with your students who miss the class or want to review, choose this option.

Enable the Recording Type

Log in to your CUNY Zoom account. click Settings > Recording. You can always enable both local and cloud recording, and choose one appropriate when you click the Record button in your meeting.
