MANAGING YOUR ZOOM RECORDING:

The best option for providing immediate backup to students who were unable to connect to your live session is to follow the instructions on page 10 in the zoom guide above for cloud recording and sharing those links.

For long term ownership of your recordings and to make sure they are available to students later on for review, these recordings should be uploaded to the Media Gallery in your bCourses site. Here are instructions for how to do that using either cloud recording or local recording:

After the Zoom meeting has ended, Zoom will convert the recording so you can access the files.

It may take up to an hour before your video has been processed and can be viewed. Once the conversion process is complete, the folder containing the recording files will open. (Note: By default, the audio/video file (MP4) will be named Zoom_0.mp4. The audio only file (M4A) is named audio_only.m4a.)

  1. Now, navigate to the Media Gallery of your bCourses site

  2. Click ‘+ Add Media’

      3. Click ‘Add New’ and choose ‘Media Upload’

      4.  Choose the audio/video file (Zoom_0.mp4) that you earlier downloaded on your local computer.

      5. Hit “Save”. It may take up an hour or two before your video has been processed once you save and upload the media. You will receive an email notification once the media is published but if not, directly go to Media Gallery to check if your media is now there. Announce to students that your video recording is posted on the Media Gallery and that is all you need to do.

After the Zoom meeting has ended, Zoom will convert the recording so you can access the files. It may take up to an hour before your video has been processed and can be viewed. 

  1. Go to https://berkeley.zoom.us/recording

      2. Download the recording file to your local computer.

      3. Now, navigate to the Media Gallery of your bCourses site

      4. Click ‘+ Add Media’

       5. Click ‘Add New’ and choose ‘Media Upload’

      6. Choose the file audio/video file that you earlier downloaded on your local computer. Most likely, what you would only need is the video file (Item type: mp4 File). The item type of the file will show up if you hover over each file. See below.  

7. Hit “Save”. It may take up about an hour or two before your video has been processed. Go to Media Gallery to check if your media is now there if you have not received an email notification. Announce to students that your video recording is posted on the Media Gallery and that is all you need to do.
