In this guide for faculty and teaching teams, you’ll learn how to publish a Cloud recording in your Canvas course.

The Zoom LTI Pro in Canvas, which MIT’s Canvas integration for Zoom, allows teaching teams to schedule, manage, and join Zoom meetings right from their Canvas course.

If you scheduled a Zoom meeting in your Canvas course and recorded it to the Cloud, you can also publish the meeting’s Cloud recording so students can view it in Canvas. Once published in Canvas, the Cloud recording will be available to all students in your class.

Note: Cloud recordings in your Canvas course are NOT published by default. Teaching teams are responsible for publishing their course’s Cloud recordings in Canvas as needed.
