In this tutorial you will learn how to post the link to your Zoom session recording on your Blackboard course site.

If you record your session on your local computer, follow the tutorial on Using Dropbox to share video links to upload your recording file to CUNY Dropbox and share the link in your Bb course.

  1. Log in to your CUNY Zoom account from a web browser.
  2. Click Recordings > Cloud Recording.
  3. Find the recording you want to share and click the Share button on the right.

  4. On the pop-up window, modify the settings as your desire. You can add an expiration date (e.g. the end of the semester) by toggling the button on the right and type in an appropriate date.  We recommend not to allow viewers to download the recording. If you wish, turn on Passcode and type in a passcode. Click "Display detailed information" to open the sharing information.
