Zoom for lecture recording

The following instructions will guide you on how to make a recording of your PowerPoint or other content on your computer using Zoom. There are two options for recording with Zoom, local recordings to your computer and cloud recordings. We typically recommend using the cloud recording option as it gets captioned automatically. This option produces a link that can be shared via WebCampus (you can also download a copy of the cloud recording as an MP4 file). The local recording option produces an MP4 that can then be shared via WebCampus/My Media.

Step 1: Launch the Zoom application on your computer.

NOTE: If you do not yet have the Zoom application please visit the University's Zoom portal. Please note this is a University-specific website and NOT the main Zoom website.

Step 2: Click on the “Sign in with SSO” login option.

This will open the University's SSO login webpage in your web browser. Once you have logged in, you should be prompted to return to the Zoom application.

Step 3: From the Zoom application, click on New Meeting.

Step 4: When the meeting interface loads, select “Join with Computer Audio” when prompted. This will use the default mic and speakers on your computer.

Step 5: Verify your mic is working – the mic icon on the mic button should flash green in response to your voice if working. Alternatively, you can use the audio options (chevron to the right of the Mic button) to test your mic. This step will help to ensure you have a viable recording.

Step 6: If desired, make sure the proper webcam is selected and working. You can toggle the webcam on/off by clicking on the webcam button. You can change your webcam and related settings by clicking on the chevron to the right of the webcam button
