How do I share a Zoom Cloud video recording with students?
Whether you create a meeting via Canvas Zoom or via your Tufts Zoom application at "tufts.zoom.us", you can share a video recording (that is saved to the Zoom cloud) with your students or with others.
When a Zoom video recording is finished processing, you will be sent an email informing you that the video is available to be shared. This email includes a link to the shared video.
You can share the video:
Option #1- by sending the shared link to students or others via an email
Option #2- by posting the link on your Canvas course site (Announcements / Modules / Pages)
Option #3- (if the meeting was scheduled via the Canvas Zoom tool - not via tufts.zoom.us), by "publishing" the shared video link in the Canvas course site Zoom tool
After receiving the Zoom email informing you that the video is available to be shared, go to "https://tufts.zoom.us, click "Sign In" and log in (or "SSO" log in via your Zoom application)
Click Recordings / Cloud Recordings

You can see this information in your Zoom (https://tufts.zoom.edu) / Recordings / Cloud Recordings, by clicking on the information icon to the immediate right of the video name.
