Managing your Zoom recordings in Brightspace

Managing your Zoom recordings

When you record a Zoom meeting, you can either choose to ‘Record on this Computer’ or ‘Record to the Cloud’.  We recommend that you record to the cloud.  If you choose Record to the Cloud, the video, audio, and chat text are recorded in the Zoom cloud and closed captions are added automatically. The recordings can be downloaded to a computer later or streamed from a browser.


  • Cloud recordings are stored for 120 days, after which time they are automatically deleted.
  • All Zoom recordings are password protected. The passwords are automatically generated when the recordings are processed.  The password will be sent to you via email, and will need to be shared with students.
  • To manage all of your recorded Zoom sessions across courses, sign in to your Zoom account. If you have only ever used Zoom within Brightspace, you may not know your Zoom password. In that case, use the ‘Forgot your Password?’ option and enter your Algonquin College email address.
  • You can find additional information about Zoom by going to Information Technology Support’s help page.
