The following instructions will guide you on how to make a recording of your PowerPoint or other content using Zoom.
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 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.
Step 7. Outside of Zoom, launch the program or PowerPoint presentation you want to share.
Step 8. Click on Share Screen at the bottom of the meeting window.
Step 9. Select the Screen option. If you have audio or video in your program or the presentation you plan to share, make sure you select the two options at the bottom: Share Computer Sound and Optimize Screen Sharing for Video Clip.
Step 10. Click on the Share button.
Step 11. Zoom will now enter share mode, which is full screen.
Step 12. Navigate to the program or presentation you would like to share.
Step 13. In the Zoom toolbar along the top of the screen, click on the More drop-down and select the Record on this Computer option.
Step 14. Begin your lecture or presentation. Proceed through your content as you normally would.
PRO TIP: Use a script when recording to make sure you don’t leave anything out – it will also help you stay concise and clear.
Step 15. When you are done, click on the More drop-down in the top Zoom toolbar and select the stop recording option.
Step 16. You can now stop the share by clicking on the red Stop Share button in the top Zoom toolbar.
Step 17. You will be taken back to the main meeting interface.
Step 18. Click on End Meeting and then End Meeting for All when prompted.
Step 19. Your recording will be located in C:\Users\COMPUTER USER\Documents\Zoom\YOUR FILE.mp4 .
Step 20. Upload your file to MyMedia (Kaltura) in WebCampus and publish to your courses as needed.
PRO TIP: You only need to upload a file once to your MyMedia, and you can use it across multiple courses, across multiple semesters.
