The TLC, in partnership with ITSP, has collated the following information about how to best use Zoom for recording lecture content, holding office hours, and helping students share presentations. We’ve included generalized Zoom support documentation, and also added in a few customized videos of our own.
Tell us if you want us to trim the beginning and the ending of the video, removing any “dead air” so students can get right to the heart of your content.
Our video team will download the video from Zoom, upload it to Mediasite, put it in your catalog, add a title slide, and do any video trimming you request. If you get a request from Chris Smith that he can’t download your recordings, follow the steps in the “How to Enable Download…” section below and he’ll be able to help as soon as you change a setting.
Your video will automatically show up in the catalog once UF’s Mediasite server has finished its processing. Processing time depends on the load on UF’s servers; it is at least 1.5x the length of your video, but can be much longer.
Once the video team is certain that your Zoom cloud recording has been successfully brought down to our system, they will delete the Zoom cloud recording, freeing that space for the next recording.
How to Enable Download for Completed Zoom Recordings
We think a setting shifted in Zoom that makes it harder for the video team to download videos when you forward them the email that your Zoom recording is ready. I believe this same issue will happen to students who may want to download any links you send them via Zoom.
Find the video you recorded and would like a viewer to be able to download. Click the Share button.
Turn On the setting Viewers can download. The link viewers may already have (if you’ve sent it before) should automatically allow them to download. (This includes our video team!)
Documentation to Send to Students
Rest assured that your students either already know how to use Zoom or will learn quickly. The entire university is utilizing this tool for online content. The following are the most important Zoom support links that benefit students:
