Share CarmenZoom Cloud Recordings in Carmen

Once you're ready to share your CarmenZoom cloud recording with your students, you will need to add the recording link in your Modules.


Zoom could recordings are available for 120 days. Learn more about downloading and sharing your cloud recordings long-term. 

By default, CarmenZoom applies a password to all cloud recordings for security purposes. Be sure to share this password with your students so they can access the recordings. While we recommend the use of passwords on recordings, you may disable the password from specific recordings or change the default for your account.

Prior to sharing lectures, review the FERPA and privacy considerations of sharing Zoom recordings.
