Automatic Zoom Class Recordings



When you use the Zoom Pro tab in Camino to record a Zoom meeting, the recording will automatically appear in your Class Recordings area in Camino. 

Once set up correctly, students can view any Zoom Pro session you record in your course’s Class Recordings, including pre-recorded lectures that you create.

Make sure that Zoom Pro and Class Recordings are both enabled for your Camino course for this integration to work. 


Navigate to your Camino course. Go to Settings > Navigation and locate both Zoom Pro and Class Recordings in the list of menu items. 

Click and drag each one to the list of enabled items.

Pre-recorded videos: Leave the session date as is. You can start the session after you save this meeting.

2. Start the Zoom Session

When you are ready, start the Zoom session by clicking the start button. Zoom will launch from your computer in a new window.


Record the Zoom Session

Once the session has started, it will automatically begin recording if you selected that option when scheduling the meeting. If not, click the Record button at the bottom of your Zoom window. When you click record, choose “Record to the cloud.” 

 how to record to cloud during a meeting

You can tell that it is recording by looking for a cloud shape in the upper left or right corner of the window, depending on which device you are using.

 confirm that your Zoom meeting is recording

You can pause the recording as needed. The recording will end automatically when the meeting ends. Once you end the Zoom session, the recording will take time to process and upload to Class Recordings. This process can take several hours to complete. No further action is required at this point.


View and Share Your Class Recordings with Students 

You can view all of your recorded classes and other uploaded videos by clicking on the Class Recordings tab in Camino. Students can also access your recordings via this area.
