Zoom: Record a Presentation and Post it to Blackboard (Students)

This document provides an overview of how to record a presentation and post it to Blackboard. The screenshots in this article may not look exactly like the version of Zoom you are running; if not, try updating Zoom on your computer.

This is a fairly simple process of recording, uploading and sharing the file, and posting it to Blackboard. As always, remember to do a short test before recording the actual presentation.
